Microstrip Wavelength Calculator
Microstrip line is a microwave transmission line composed of a single conductor strip supported on a dielectric substrate. It is suitable for making flat structure transmission lines of microwave integrated circuits. Compared with metal waveguides, it is small in size, light in weight, wide in use frequency, high in reliability, and low in manufacturing cost; but the loss is slightly larger and the power capacity is small.
The microstrip line is a microwave transmission line composed of a single conductor strip supported on a dielectric substrate, and a grounded metal plate is made on the other side of the substrate. The most commonly used dielectric substrate materials are 99.5% purity alumina ceramics and polyolefin or woven glass fiber materials.
Microstrip lines are widely used in microwave integrated circuits and high-speed pulse circuits. Its advantages are small size, lightweight, frequency bandwidth, high reliability, low cost, and easy connection with solid devices, which facilitates the integration of microwave components and systems. Its disadvantages are large loss and difficult adjustment, which is limited to small and medium power applications.
