A Millimeter-Wave SIW Gain Equalizer Using LTCC Technology
This paper presents a novel structure of millimeter-wave amplitude equalization based on low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) technology, which is implemented by substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) resonator, thin film resistor, microstrip-line and metallic via hole probe. It has advantages of compact, easy for integration, low cost, low loss, and mass-producible. The effects of each component for equalizer performance have been analyzed by simulation. In order to validate the new proposed topology, a millimeter-wave gain equalizer is developed and verified by full-wave simulation using 9-layers Ferro A6 substrates. The designed equalizer exhibits excellent performances.
