SIMULATION OF INTERDIGITATED STRUCTURES USING TWO-COUPLED-LINE MODELS

A simple technique to simulate circuits with multiple coupled lines in commercial simulators without suitable models
TECHNICAL FEATURE SIMULATION OF INTERDIGITATED STRUCTURES USING TWO-COUPLED-LINE MODELS Abstract: Some commercial microwave CAD programs do not incorporate models for more than three coupled lines. This fact is especially critical in the design and analysis of multiple-line planar structures, such as interdigital, combline and hairpin filters, meander lines, spiral...
