In this paper a passive guaranteed wide-band equivalent circuit derivation methodology, attempting to bridge physical geometry considerations with equivalent circuits model extractions, is proposed. Electromagnetic (EM) eigen-states formulation is introduced to bridge between physical topology (geometry) and equivalent network architectures. Instead of casting global Z or Y parameters in pole-residue expansions following Pi or T-networks, the proposed methodology considers eigen-states input impedances/admittances as primary goal functions to derive in canonical equivalent circuit models. While classical Pi or T representations are based on global ground assumptions, the proposed methodology refers to local ground references. The validity of the broadband extraction methodology is demonstrated through correlations with RF measurement carried out on CPW transmission lines and coupled RF inductors up to very high frequencies.
