Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


A technique for characterising transitions between different transmission line media is examined. Applications include development of novel circuit media and use as a de-embedding measurement tool. The technique requires measurement of only two sets of back-to-back transitions, separated by different, known electrical lengths, and is therefore simple to implement. Both theoretical and measured results are presented.
