    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: The Maximum Radiated Electromagnetic Emissions Calculator (MREMC) is a software tool that allows the user to calculate the maximum possible radiated emissions that could occur due to specific source geometries on a printed circuit board. This report describes the I/O coupling algorithm, which determines the maximum possible radiated emissions that could occur due to coupling from a source signal on one trace to another (I/O) trace that could carry the coupled signal off the board. The methods used, calculations made, and implementation details are described.

    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.
