Abstract:

Extensive finite element analyses on MMIC monolithic microwave integrated circuit slow wave structures with both localized and layered models are presented. Good agreement is achieved for results obtained in this paper with other theoretical results and experiments. Higher order elements that improve accuracy are discussed. The comparative studies for the Schottky contact microstrip and the coplanar waveguide with localized and layered models are presented. Potential applications of the localized models to more general and practical slow wave circuits are also discussed.
