This ebook provides and discusses choices to bland transmission strains for the layout and implementation of complex RF/microwave elements in planar technology.
This publication is dedicated to the research, examine and functions of synthetic transmission traces as a rule carried out through a number line with ease changed (e.g., with modulation of transverse dimensions, with etched styles within the metal layers, etc.) or with reactive loading, to be able to in attaining novel machine functionalities, better functionality, and/or lowered measurement.
The writer starts off with an introductory bankruptcy devoted to the basics of planar transmission traces. bankruptcy 2 is concentrated on synthetic transmission traces in response to periodic constructions (including non-uniform transmission traces and reactively-loaded lines), and gives a accomplished research of the coupled mode thought. Chapters three and four are devoted to synthetic transmission strains encouraged via metamaterials, or in response to metamaterial recommendations. those chapters contain the most useful implementations of such traces and their circuit versions, and a large evaluate in their RF/microwave purposes (including passive and energetic circuits and antennas). bankruptcy five specializes in reconfigurable units in line with tunable man made strains, and on non-linear transmission traces. The bankruptcy additionally introduces numerous fabrics and elements to accomplish tuning, together with diode varactors, RF-MEMS, ferroelectrics, and liquid crystals. ultimately, bankruptcy 6 covers different complex transmission traces and wave guiding buildings, equivalent to electroinductive-/magnetoinductive-wave traces, common-mode suppressed balanced strains, lattice-network synthetic traces, and substrate built-in waveguides.
Artificial Transmission traces for RF and Microwave purposes offers an in-depth research and dialogue of man-made transmission strains, together with layout instructions that may be priceless to researchers, engineers and students.
