This extensively revised edition of the 1999 Artech House classic, RF and Microwave Coupled-Line Circuits, offers you a thoroughly up-to-date understanding of coupled line fundamentals, explaining their applications in designing microwave and millimeter-wave components used in today 's communications, microwave, and radar systems. The Second Edition includes a wealth of new material, particularly relating to applications. You find brand new discussions on a novel simple design technique for multilayer coupled circuits, high pass filters using coupled lines, software packages used for filter design, design of elliptic response microstrip filters, and advanced filters using new materials and technologies. This unique book provides you with a thorough understanding of stripline, microstrip, monolithic, and coplanar technologies.


Emphasizing design, analysis, and modern fabrication techniques and practices, it provides invaluable knowledge and guidance in helping you develop compact and low-cost design solutions and components such as loose and tight couplers, filters, hybrids, transformers, and baluns. Featuring more than 1100 equations, this comprehensive book serves as a consolidated resource of classic and cutting-edge information on coupled structures.

  • Inder J. Bahl

    received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, in 1975. Dr. Bahl has more than 40 years of experience working in the microwave field. Dr. Bahl researched and managed products including microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits, printed antennas, phased array antennas, millimeter wave antennas, and medical and industrial applications of microwaves. He joined the ITT Gallium Arsenide Technology Center in 1981 and launched numerous microwave and millimeter wave GaAs IC products for commercial and military applications. At Cobham (formerly ITT GTC/Tyco Electronics), he continued working on GaAs ICs as a Distinguished Fellow of Technology until he retired in 2010. Through his research publications and books, he is well recognized worldwide in the microwave field. Dr. Bahl is the author or co-author of more than 160 research papers. He authored or co-authored 15 books and holds 17 patents. He is an IEEE Life Fellow and a member of the Electromagnetic Academy.
