%X An alternative approach for the full wave analysis
of single or coupled planar transmission lines is presented. Following the proposed approach, a multiple (or single) transmission
line structure is viewed as series of staked (or single) transverse
discontinuities in a parallel plate waveguide. As a consequence,
both top and side coupled structures can be studied. Each
individual discontinuity is described in terms of a multimode
equivalent network representation. The complete cross section
of the planar transmission line structure is then described in
terms of a transverse equivalent network and a simple transverse resonance technique is then used to obtain the dispersion
behavior, the modal field of the structure, and the characteristic
impedances. The multimode equivalent network representations
of the individual discontinuities used in this paper have been
derived else where and are given in terms of impedance or admittance matrices that are essentially independent from frequency.
As a result, they need to be computed only once for each given
geometry thus leading to codes that are computationally very
efficient.
