In this paper equivalent Substrate Integrated Waveguide (SIW) for a waveguide is designed. Different types of losses in the waveguide and the optimized SIW are calculated theoretically and a comparison is done between the two. The comparison proves that at millimeter wave frequencies the choice of dielectric becomes crucial for a waveguide design and SIW is… (More)
A comparison between the Waveguide and its equivalent Substrate Integrated Waveguide is done. HFSS simulation software is used for all the simulations. An optimum equivalent is found from the various parametric variations.
