Abstract

We investigate the importance of broadband substrate permittivity and loss tangent measurement for accurate calculations of the characteristic impedance and propagation constant of ungrounded coplanar waveguides (CPWs). To determine the properties of a CPW, we use a quasi-TEM model that takes into account the effects of non-ideal conductors, substrate loss and finite metallization thickness. The propagation of uncertainties is studied with the aid of Monte Carlo (MC) simulations.
