Paper Abstract

A new transmission line configuration is presented for microwave and high-speed digital applications. The structure consists of a conducting strip over a triangular ground reference and offer superior electromagnetic performance at higher frequencies with lower radiation and lower coupling between neighboring interconnect lines. Parameters resulting from a static analysis are shown as a function of the geometrical characteristics and a full wave analysis is used to establish the frequency dependence of the propagation constant. Experimental results are compared with the theoretical data to validate the analysis and determine the advantages of the new structure.
