Abstract:

A generalized solution for a class of printed circuit antennas, excited by a strip transmission line is presented. The strip transmission line may be embedded inside or printed on the substrate. As an example, microstrip dipoles electromagnetically coupled parasitically excited to embedded strip transmission line have been analyzed accurately and design graphs are provided for a specific substrate material. These graphs permit the establishment of a design procedure which yields the microstrip dipole length, overlap, offset, and substrate thickness with the goal of a desired input match for a given substrate material. The method accounts for conductor thickness and for arbitrary substrate parameters. Comparison with experiment shows excellent agreement. Author
