Download Coplanar Waveguide Circuits, Components, and Systems by Rainee N. Simons pdf free. This book contains wealth of information regarding the design aspects of coplanar waveguides, type of coplanar waveguide, applications of coplanar waveguide etc, all related to coplanar waveguide construction for integrated chips and microwave communication component design.

A figure of coplanar waveguide structure taken from the book is shown below to show you how a coplanar waveguide looks like.

Of course this is just a sketch but illustrates the point. The sketch shows you microscopic view of what it looks like on a chip. In the figure you can see the dimension of the coplanar waveguide.

So what is waveguide useful for and why study them? As electronics products and application of electronics increases there is high demand for lower power consumption and higher packaging density. This is one reason for increasing use of coplanar waveguide. The other is the use of microwave frequencies. Higher frequency usually correlates to higher speed of operation of electronics devices.

So where are coplanar waveguide used and what are the advantages of Coplanar Waveguide Circuits? They are used in Amplifiers, Active Combiners, Frequency Doublers, Mixers, and Switches, Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Metal Membrane Capacitive Switches, Thin Film High-Temperature Superconducting/Ferroelectric Tunable Circuits and Components, Photonic Bandgap Structures, Printed Antennas and others. The advantage of using coplanar waveguide are small size, ease of manufacturing, integration to existing technologies and making use of high frequency resulting in faster speed of electronics devices.

Ok now that you know the advantages and application of coplanar waveguide you want to know how to design coplanar waveguides. For this you need both to understand the theory and use of software for designing and simulating your coplanar design.

Coplanar Waveguide Circuits, Components, and Systems pdf downlod freeIn regards to theory of coplanar waveguide, it is good to classify coplanar waveguides. We can talk about Conventional Coplanar Waveguide, Conductor-Backed Coplanar Waveguide, Coplanar Waveguide with Finite-Width Ground Planes, Coplanar Waveguide Suspended inside a Conducting Enclosure, Coplanar Striplines, Microshield Lines and Coupled Coplanar Waveguide.

After you can differentiate and know that there are different types of coplanar waveguides, you should also know about specific aspects and effects in waveguides. Herein Attenuation Characteristics of Conventional, Micromachined, and Superconducting Coplanar Waveguides, Discontinuities and Circuit Elements, Coplanar Waveguide Transitions, Directional Couplers, Hybrids, and Magic-Ts etc.

Designed and most useful for electronics engineers in the RF or microwave field, physicist requiring coplanar waveguide in their work this book is one of the recommended book. It contains and explains vast types and design techniques for waveguide.
