[SI-LIST] Re: time domain simulation of s-parameter

Interesting thread so far.

There are tools that can convert the S-params to an equivalent passive
circuit, which automatically insures passive/causal.  Other tools can
"adjust" the S-params to guarantee passivity and causality (such as a
pole/zero format), to account for noise in the data.

The usual caveat applies: the modified model could result in slower
simulation.  For example, slower simulation with added "nodes" is a known
issue in SPICE.    Some tools let you select the number of RLC stages to
use, so you can trade off accuracy against SPICE simulation time.

That's not always the case. When you don't have DC data in your S-par, not
to mention the S-par is not passive guaranteed, your transient simulation
will not converge.
