A Novel Wideband Transition Between a Conductor-backed Finite Ground CPW and a Microstrip Line

This article describes a transition between a conductor-backed coplanar waveguide (CPW) and a microstrip line, which provides a very low loss alternative to a standard microstrip-to-coplanar line transition at higher frequencies. This simple topology i...
Microstrips (MS) and coplanar waveguides (CPW) are two of the main waveguide structures used in higher frequency applications, because of their compatibility with monolithic fabrication and solid-state devices. In CPW, the signal lines and ground planes are placed on one side of the substrate, permitting a circuit consisting of...
