Title: Experimental Study of the Ground Plane in Asymmetric Coupled Silicon Lines
Published: October 01, 2001
Abstract: We use a measurement method designed for coupled lines on highly conductive substrates to characterize identical asymmetric coupled lines fabricated on lossy silicon with and without a metalization plane beneath the two signal conductors. The study illustrates the important role of the return path in determining the electromagnetic coupling between the lines.
