Rectangular-shaped microshield coplanar waveguides on cylindrical substrate
In this study CAD-oriented analytic expressions derived by the conformal mapping method are presented, for the first time, for calculating the line parameters of a rectangular-shaped microshield CPW on a cylindrical substrate. The effect of the curvature on the line parameters is discussed. In addition, this papers results are compared with the results available in the literature for a rectangular-shaped microshield coplanar waveguide on a planar substrate.
