Unsymmetrical broadside-coupled coplanar waveguides for loose-and tight-coupling mic and mmic applications Academic Article uri icon


  • New broadside-coupled coplanar waveguides (CPW) having a completely asymmetrical structure, suitable for hybrid and monolithic microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits requiring broad bandwidths as well as loose and tight couplings, is proposed and examined for the first time. The results of the inivestigation, performed based on the spectral-domain analysis, demonstrate the versatility of the asymmetrical broadside-coupled CPW as compared to its symmetrical counterpart. 1996 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
