Multiconductor Transmission Line Characterization

Published

Author(s)

Abstract

This paper presents a measurement method that completely characterizes lossy printed multiconductor transmission lines. It determines not only the matrices of impedances and admittances per unit length describing the transmission line in the conductor representation, but also the propagation constants, characteristic impedances, and cross-powers for each mode supported in the line. We apply the method to a pair of lossy coupled asymmetric microstrip lines.
