Abstract:

In this report, a rigorous investigation of the de-embedding of RF inductors and capacitors was presented. The typical parasitic impedances present in an RF test structure were discussed. Basic knowledge of these parasitics allows the designer to effectively adjust the test structures to account for any limitations imposed by the probe technology being used. Some technologies allow traces to be etched at arbitrary angles, making it possible for a coplanar waveguide interconnect to be used, thus minimizing the interconnect impedance.
