Abstract

In this paper, equivalent circuit of short wave length coplanar waveguide employing Periodic Ground Structure on Silicon (PGSS) were investigated using theoretical analysis. Equivalent circuits for the PGSS cell were extracted, and all lumped circuit parameters were expressed by closed form equation. A fairly good agreement between calculated and measured results were observed from 0 to 25 GHz. Above results indicate that the proposed equivalent circuit can be efficiently used up to K band.
