Quasistatic TEM characteristics of overlayed supported asymmetric coplanar waveguides
MetadataShow full item record
CAD oriented analytic formulas are presented for calculating the quasistatic TEM parameters of the overlayed supported asymmetric coplanar waveguides (OSACPW). The effect of the thicknesses and the dielectric constants of the overlaying and supporting materials on the quasistatic parameters has been investigated by using the expressions derived by the conformal mapping techniques, Comparisons have also been made between this article's results and the results available in the literature for the conventional coplanar waveguide (CPW) and the asymmetric coplanar waveguide (ACPW), It has been shown that the present formulas can also be used for calculating the quasistatic TEM parameters of the line structures such as the open, the open supported, and the overlayed supported CPW or ACPW.
