Paper Abstract

In the paper, electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structures in coplanar waveguide (CPW) technology are presented. In order to design this type of circuits, a custom Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) code is employed. Due to the fact that simulation is performed in the time domain, a wide frequency response can be obtained in a reasonable amount of time, being a numerically efficient technique. Simulation of several proposed designs are presented and these results are validated with measurements from fabricated prototypes. The results show that the use of FDTD techniques is adequate for the design of EBG devices in planar circuit technology in general.
