    ABSTRACT: A technique for modeling the adjacent and nonadjacent couplings between several microstrip lines in microwave integrated circuits (MICs) and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) is presented. The technique assumes that the primary transmission paths in the circuit can be modeled with conventional single or coupled microstrip models. A particular four-port model is then superimposed on the existing circuit for each adjacent or nonadjacent coupling that is present. This model uses analytical equations for microstrip coupled lines and is, therefore, fast and easy to compute

    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.

    ABSTRACT: Using the modified conformal mapping technique, closed-form quasistatic design equations for covered microstrip slot/parallel-coupled lines are derived in this article. They are found to be more accurate than the existing ones, when compared with the rigorous results by numerical methods. Specifically, the derived equations for the even-mode properties of slot-coupled lines and those for the odd-mode properties of parallel-coupled lines are extremely useful because the existing counterparts are either too rough or too inaccurate for use. In addition, two sets of available design equations for covered microstrip single line, which is equivalent to the covered microstrip slot-coupled lines under odd-mode excitations, are checked and recommendations are given.
