Title:
Full-Wave Analysis of Discontinuities in Uniplanar and Multiplanar Transmission Lines Using the Frequency-Domain TLM Method 
Abstract:
The authors introduce a rigorous analysis of a variety of transmission line transition discontinuities and module interconnect assemblies in MMIC (monolithic microwave integrated circuit) and miniature MIC circuits using the frequency-domain TLM (transmission line matrix) method. Numerical results on frequency-dependent S-parameters are presented which include the effect of finite thickness and conductivity of the metallization as well as mode interaction between cascaded discontinuities. The ef...    »
