Paper Abstract

Multi-layer MMIC spiral transformers for 4:1 impedance transformation is investigated by using the FDTD method in this paper. The transformer employs three vertical transmission line layers, and the modeling is carried out for the properties and performance of the impedance transformer over a wide frequency range. The results obtained shows that the impedance transformer performs quite reasonably in a wide bandwidth.
