Abstract : A new transition method for realizing suspended substrate strip-line (SSS) components into multi-layer circuit boards is presented. This approach utilizes an optimized coplanar waveguide to strip-line vertical via transition prior to a strip-line to SSS transition. A DC-20 GHz suspended integrated strip-line (SISL) thru is designed, simulated, and measured to provide an ultra-wideband (UWB) proof-of-concept for this technology. The measured results show good correlation to the simulated results with a return loss and insertion loss of less than 10 dB and greater than 3.0 dB, respectively across the 20 GHz passband.
