Coplanar-Waveguide-to-Microstrip Transition Model



Wojciech Wiatr, Dave K. Walker, Dylan Williams


We develop a novel four-port equivalent circuit for a coplanar-waveguide-to-microstrip transition using a finite-difference time-domain analysis. The lumped model accounts for mutual inductive coupling and works well up to about 30 GHz.
