T-shaped structures, proposed to synthesize the quarter-wavelength transmission lines, have proved efficient for circuit miniaturization. While the design equations for the symmetric case are published, the existing equations for asymmetric cases, as reported recently, could lead to frequency-shift problems. In this letter, we analytically study the T-shaped structures and present closed-form design equations for synthesis of quarter-wavelength transmission lines. The equations explicitly show… CONTINUE READING
