SIW Distributed Amplifier: Analysis, Prospects and Challenges

IEEE MTT-S International Conference 2016, Beijing, China

Substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW) distributed amplifiers  require complicated waveguide components which can make comprehensive full-wave simulation difficult.  To better assess the amplifier, much of the waveguide componentry can be accurately represented by equivalent half-mode rectangular waveguide.  In this work, spurious coupling between close proximity waveguide open-edges are shown to adversely affect performance and the challenge is to mitigate this affect.
