30% faster than that of bulk, and it passes the reliability and system test.
In this paper, we show a low-loss integrated waveguide (IWG), microstrip line-to-IWG transition, IWG bandpass filter (BPF), and system-on-package (SOP) using a liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) substrate, which can be used toward SOP technology for millimeter-wave applications. The proposed IWG can be used as a low-loss millimeter-wave transmission line on this… (More)
Conventionally, microstrip coupled line filters have been utilized in developing relatively narrow fractional bandwidth band pass filters due to their relatively weak coupling . These filters have desirable advantages, such as low fabrication cost and ease of integration. However , despite of these advantages, this type of filter has the inherent large 2… (More)
In this paper, a fractal parallel coupled-line feeding structure is proposed to realize the 2 nd harmonic suppression property, while allowing for a broadband operation of microstrip patch antennas. Numerical results have demonstrated that this type of fractal feeding can provide the antenna with a two times broader bandwidth compared to that of the… (More)
In this paper, one linear tapered slot antenna (LTSA), backed with an air cavity, is proposed and fabricated on low temperature cofired ceramic (LTCC) substrate. Conventionally, when LTSA is designed on LTCC board, due to its high dielectric constant and thickness, the gain and radiation property is degraded seriously. Therefore in this paper, by adopting… (More)
— In this paper, microstrip coupled line band pass filters using Koch fractal curves are proposed for the first time. These filters are fabricated on Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) substrate for Ku Band. Conventional microstrip coupled line filters are very popular for RF front ends because these can be made easily. However, their large 2 nd harmonic causes… (More)
