    ABSTRACT: This paper focuses on the derivation of an enhanced transmission-line model allowing the stochastic analysis of a realistic multiconductor interconnect. The proposed model, which is based on the expansion of the well-known telegraph equations in terms of orthogonal polynomials, includes the variability of geometrical or material properties of the interconnect due to uncertainties like fabrication process or temperature. A real application example involving the frequency-domain analysis of a coupled microstrip and the computation of the parameters variability effects on the transmission-line response concludes this paper.

    ABSTRACT: In this study the design and construction of an ultrawideband backward wave directional coupler is presented. The symmetric, non-uniform coupler covers the frequency range from 2 to 50 GHz with an average coupling of 16.6 2.4 dB while establishing directivity values greater than 10 dB from 10 MHz to 33.8 GHz and 8 dB up to 48.4 GHz. The design is based on coupled microstrip lines suitable for integration into planar front end modules of modern measurement systems. To account for the dispersive behaviour of such waveguides, wiggly-line technique is utilised. Accurate extraction of the waveguide frequency-dependent distributed equivalent circuit parameters is done by 2D finite element electromagnetic field (EM) simulation. To balance out the remaining mistuning appropriate scaling parameters are introduced. The influence of common manufacturing and assembly tolerances on the device performance is analysed. Measurement results of the synthesised coupler with planar matched isolated port are presented.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this research project is to study the time domain response of electromagnetic wave radiation, transmission and coupling in multilayered media. The following problems are pursued: (1) extensions and modifications to the double deformation technique; (2) propagation in nonconventional transmission structures; (3) signal distortion at discontinuities; (4) the effects of anisotropic material and nonlinear loads; (5) limitation of quasi-TEM approximation. We shall emphasize and seek to refine a powerful transform-domain formulation, the double deformation technique in order to have a unified way of interpreting the results. Yet other techniques such as the space-time domain integral equation method, the transmission line matrix method, the method of characteristics, and the method of moments are also to be applied to different problems as demanded by efficiency or ease of formulation. The research results can be applied to computer-aided design of hig-speed microelectronic integrated circuits, as well as to time-domain geophysics sub-surface probing, and active remote sensing with transient radar pulses.
