Abstract:

The modeling of picosecond pulse propagation on microwave integrated circuit interconnections is considered. Autoregressive moving-average ARMA and autoregressive AR parametric models are derived for lossy dispersive microstrip transmission lines and cascaded microstrip step discontinuities. We formulated mathematical expressions to relate the model parameters to the physical microstrip properties. New lumped-distributed equivalent circuit interconnections is modeled using frequency-dependent lumped parameters and lossy distributed transmission-line sections. We verified the equivalent circuit models through computer simulations and experimental measurements. Modern parameters estimation techniques are applied to system identification modeling. We develop several algorithms to estimate the model parameters from input andor output measurements. The performance of the algorithms are evaluated using computer simulations and experimental results.
