A Coplanar Probe to Microstrip Transition

Published

Dylan F. Williams, Tom H. Miers

Abstract

A transition between a coplanar probe and a microstrip transmission line is reported. The transition is significant in that it does not require substrate via holes. A set of microstrip impedance standards were developed for the purpose of de-embedding the transition. The transition is suitable for measuring the S parameters of a number of low-cost monolithic microwave integrated circuits with coplanar probes.
