Understanding Microstrip Filter Topologies

Source: Knowles Precision Devices DLI

The behavior of transmission lines in RF systems becomes important when the transmitted frequency’s wavelength is short enough that the length of cable becomes a significant part of a wavelength. Microstrip refers to a type of planar transmission line technology that consists of a conducting strip separated from a ground plane by a dielectric substrate. Entire devices are formed from metallized patterns on the substrate, making Microstrip lighter, more compact and more affordable than alternative transmission line technologies such as waveguide.
