Abstract

A flexible and reliable full-wave modal integral method is proposed to efficiently characterize planar transmission structures printed on multilayered isotropic/anisotropic substrates. Based on the mathematical concept of operators used in electromagnetism, it consists in determining the modal inner products obtained through the Galerkin's procedure via a proper choice of trial functions with metallic edge effects. To this aim, a fast and accurate nonuniform discretization algorithm is introduced for the first time, while using a new process to accelerate the convergence with regard to the number of areas of such inner products, thus significantly reducing the required CPU-time for planar transmission lines analysis. To demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed numerical integral approach, a successful comparison was achieved through a close agreement with published data.
