This article presents an efficient method for characterization of substrate integrated passive circuits. The analysis is based on the wave concept formulation and the iterative resolution of a system of two equations between incident and re ected waves. Simulations obtained are compared with analytical references and HFSS simulations. A good agreement is achieved with computation time saving.
