In this paper, a novel on chip slow wave structure is developed. It is built with discontinuous microstrip steps, the discontinuous line is made by placing a wide and short line and a narrow and short line in turn and the step discontinuity provides with additional inductance and capacitance. The slow wave transmission line structures were achieved through… CONTINUE READING
