Domain decomposition FDTD algorithm combined with numerical TL calibration technique and its application in parameter extraction of substrate integrated circuits

An efficient hybrid algorithm, known as the "domain decomposition finite-difference time-domain" (DD-FDTD) method combined with a numerical thru-line (TL) calibration technique, is proposed and developed for the accurate parameter extraction of microwave circuits and structures. By means of a TL technique, the developed FDTD algorithm not only greatlyâ€¦Â (More)
