Portuguese term or phrase: PASSIVEL /PASSIVEIS
See my previous question entitled 'pode ser interpretado...' The expression is 'Passiveis de sintonicaçao' but I can't find a noun 'passivel'. Any ideas? The context is tuning algorithms.

Explanation:
"Passível" em português é bastante genérico. Na minha opinião, as duas traduções sugeridas servem, mas entre elas há uma variação de sentido, pois são mais "específicas" do que "passível". Escolha o que achar melhor, dependendo do que for mais adequado ao contexto.<br>
