Full Characterization of Substrate Integrated Waveguides from S-Parameter Measurements


A complete methodology to characterize substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) structures from S-parameter measurements is presented. We determined the complex propagation constant, the characteristic impedance of a homogeneous section of waveguide, and the efficiency of different adapters used to launch the signals into the waveguide. After a detailed… (More)
