Higher-order modes for broadside-coupled striplines in a shield

Authors


Abstract

[1] A mode-matching method is applied to broadside-coupled striplines in a shield to obtain a dispersion relation. Higher-order mode analyses are performed, and their cutoff frequencies are evaluated. Good agreement with existing solutions is demonstrated. Higher-order field characteristics are illustrated. The mode-matching model provides an efficient and stable means of analyzing broadside-coupled striplines in a shield.
