Integral Equation Analysis of Microwave Integrated Circuits
Most of the analysis methods presently available for the analysis of microstrip structures are either limited to or optimized for planar geometries with simple, regular shapes.1“4 The modern microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits, however, cannot always be considered planar and they are usually far from being simple.5‘6 Therefore, it is increasingly important to have at one’s disposal techniques, which would make it possible to accurately and rigorously analyze more complex circuit geometries. In this paper, we describe an integral equation approach, which we find especially suitable for this task.
