Title: Characterization of Asymmetric Coupled CMOS Line
Published: June 01, 2000
Abstract: This paper investigates the properties of asymmetric coupled lines built in a 0.25 5m CMOS technology in the frequency range of 50 MHz to 26.5 GHz. We show that the frequency-dependent line parameters extracted from callibrated four-port S-parameter measurements agree well with data predicted by numerical calculations. To our knowledge these are the first complete high-frequency measurements of the line parameters for asymmetric coupled lines on silicon ever reported.
