Experimental results on microshield transmission line circuits Conference Paper uri icon


  • Experimental results on microshield stepped-impedance filters and transitions to grounded coplanar waveguide are presented. Microshield shows potential for improved performance relative to current planar transmission line geometries. The filter response compared very well with ideal transmission line theory when effective line length corrections for impedance steps were used. The best transition performance demonstrates an S/sub 11/ below -15 dB from 20 to 40 GHz. The fabrication and design of the transitions and filters are also discussed.<>
