Substrate Integrated Suspended Line Circuits and Systems is a comprehensive guide to a cutting-edge transmission line technology known as the substrate-integrated suspension line (SISL). As a systematic guide, it explores the fundamentals and practical applications of SISL, outlining its structure, passive and active circuit variations, and front-end sub-systems.


Highlighting the evolution from traditional transmission lines, the book emphasizes the advantages of substrate-integrated suspension line, explaining its ability to retain the strengths of suspended lines while addressing the limitations of conventional waveguide suspended line circuits. Since transmission line is a fundamental component of microwave and mm-wave circuits, the properties of a transmission line, such as losses, size, and dispersion, are vital to the performance of the entire system. This makes the discussion of high-performance RF, microwave, and mm-wave circuits and systems a key focus of the book.


This book serves as an excellent reference book for those who are working on RF and microwave engineering and would like to develop high performance RF and microwave circuits. Presenting in-depth insights into the innovative SISL technology and its applications within the realm of high-frequency circuits and systems, it is ideal for senior undergraduates, graduate students, engineering professionals, or researchers in the field of integrated circuits, microelectronics, RF and microwave circuits, and communication engineering.
