This paper describes the design and fabrication of low-cost coplanar waveguide (CPW) miniature meander inductors. Inductors are fabricated on a flexible plastic polyimide foil in ink-jet printed technology with silver nanoparticle ink in a single layer. For the first time, the detailed characterization and simulation of CPW inductors in this technology is reported. The inductors are developed with impressive measured self-resonance frequency up to 18.6 GHz. The 2.107-nH inductor measures only 1… CONTINUE READING
