Quasistatic analysis of cylindrical coplanar waveguide with multilayer dielectrics
CAD-oriented analytic formulas are given for calculating the quasistatic parameters of the cylindrical CPW with three dielectrics. The effects of the dielectric materials on the quasistatic characteristics are investigated by using conformal mapping techniques. The calculated results are compared with those obtained for a corresponding planar CPW and a cylindrical CPW with a single dielectric. The curvature effects on the quasistatic characteristics are discussed. Moreover, the present expressions can also be extended to the cylindrical CPW with multilayer dielectrics.
