Title

Analysis and Design of Rectangular Waveguide-to-microstrip e-Probe Transitions

Abstract

This thesis introduces broadband waveguide-to-microstrip E-Probe transitions for the X band (8.0 to 12.4 GHz). Advantages of the E-Probe transition are discussed and compared to other existing waveguide-to-microstrip transitions. Basic operation of the waveguide-to-microstrip interface is addressed as well as the design procedure used to optimize each configuration for the best electrical performance. The design of a test fixture to accurately measure the results of a single waveguide-to-microstrip transition is presented. Various E-Probe transition configurations were designed and tested. Experimental data shows the E-Probe transitions are broadband with low insertion loss. Suggestions for future modifications and potential improvements are discussed.
