Artificial Transmission Lines for RF and Microwave by Ferran Mart?n

By Ferran Mart?n

This publication offers and discusses choices to bland transmission traces for the layout and implementation of complicated RF/microwave elements in planar technology.

This e-book is dedicated to the research, examine and functions of man-made transmission traces ordinarily applied via a number line with ease changed (e.g., with modulation of transverse dimensions, with etched styles within the steel layers, etc.) or with reactive loading, so one can in attaining novel machine functionalities, stronger functionality, and/or decreased dimension.

The writer starts off with an introductory bankruptcy devoted to the basics of planar transmission traces. bankruptcy 2 is targeted on synthetic transmission strains in response to periodic constructions (including non-uniform transmission strains and reactively-loaded lines), and gives a complete research of the coupled mode thought. Chapters three and four are devoted to synthetic transmission strains encouraged by means of metamaterials, or according to metamaterial suggestions. those chapters contain the most useful implementations of such traces and their circuit types, and a large review in their RF/microwave purposes (including passive and lively circuits and antennas). bankruptcy five specializes in reconfigurable units in accordance with tunable synthetic strains, and on non-linear transmission strains. The bankruptcy additionally introduces a number of fabrics and elements to accomplish tuning, together with diode varactors, RF-MEMS, ferroelectrics, and liquid crystals. eventually, bankruptcy 6 covers different complex transmission strains and wave guiding buildings, equivalent to electroinductive-/magnetoinductive-wave traces, common-mode suppressed balanced traces, lattice-network man made traces, and substrate built-in waveguides.

Artificial Transmission traces for RF and Microwave functions offers an in-depth research and dialogue of synthetic transmission traces, together with layout instructions that may be necessary to researchers, engineers and students.

This simplifies the analysis, and provides compact formulas, which is enough for our purposes. For the case of the parallel plate transmission line (Fig. 8), let W and h be the width of the metal plates and the height of the substrate, respectively. 63). 67) is not strictly valid, but it provides a rough approximation of αd by merely introducing the effective permittivity (defined as the effective dielectric constant times the permittivity of vacuum) in the last term. 67) rewrites as [12, 13] follows: αd = πf εr εre − 1 tan δ c εre εr − 1 1 68 where it has been assumed that μ = μo and (μoεo)−1 is the speed of light in vacuum, c.

This means that the characteristic impedance of the balanced paired strips line is twice the characteristic impedance of the microstrip line. Most practical implementations of balanced lines incorporate a ground plane, or some other global reference conductor. Such differential structures cannot be considered as pure two-conductor systems, since the ground plane becomes the third conductor of a three-conductor line (Fig. 11c). Such three-conductor line can be implemented by means of a pair of coupled lines over a ground plane.

Notice that the symmetry plane of the paired strips transmission line is an electric wall, and hence a virtual ground. Therefore, this structure can be analyzed by applying symmetry properties, that is, by removing the lower half of the structure, and adding a conducting plate, acting as ground plane, in the backside of the “sliced” substrate. Obviously, the resulting structure is a singleended microstrip transmission line, and hence the main line parameters are calculated by applying the same formulas.
