This paper reports progress in the CAD of microwave circuits using a parallel TLM code with Prony's method. With only 100 TLM time samples, the scattering parameters of a microwave bandpass filter are extracted via Prony's method on a normal workstation. Such a combination of the parallel TLM module and Prony's method brings efficient optimization using time domain techniques within acceptable time limits.
