Quasi-TEM Analysis of Symmetrical Shielded Broadside-Coupled Microstrip Lines
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 100, 213-223, 2021
Abstract
In this work, a numerical quasi-static approach is proposed to efficiently analyze symmetrical shielded broadside-coupled microstrip line (SBCML) structures. Based on the modified least squares boundary residual method combined with a variational technique, this approach allows accurate computation of the electrical/geometrical parameters of different SBCML configurations. The errors for the quasi-TEM electrical parameters range are less than 4%. The proposed technique was demonstrated through successful comparison with data from published works and results obtained from commercial EM simulators like CST-EMS and COMSOL.
