High Frequency Numerical Modeling of Passive Monolithic Circuits and Antenna Feed Networks

  • Linda P. B. Katehi

Abstract

During the past ten years, the requirements for low cost systems with small volume and low weight introduced the need for high operating frequencies and led to the development of monolithic technology. An important characteristic of this technology is that all antenna elements, active devices and passive circuits including components and interconnections are formed on the surface of a semi-insulating substrate by some deposition method.
