RF Lines

The wide use of integrated microwave and millimeter-wave circuits requires a packaging and interconnection technology, which keeps in mind on the one hand the specific circumstances of the case materials and on the other hand meets the special requirements of high-frequency connection to the chip. The necessary structures are typically implemented as microstrip line or coplanar line. For particularly high-frequency connections to more than 100-GHz semirigid coaxial cables are used. In this chapter, the basic principles of the coaxial and coplanar lines are represented.
