Abstract: A new defected ground structure (DGS) for the microstrip line is proposed in this paper. The proposed DGS unit structure can provide the bandgap characteristic in some frequency bands with only one or more unit lattices. The equivalent circuit for the proposed defected ground unit structure is derived by means of three-dimensional field analysis methods. The equivalent-circuit parameters are extracted by using a simple circuit analysis method. By employing the extracted parameters and circuit analysis theory, the bandgap effect for the provided defected ground unit structure can be explained. By using the derived and extracted equivalent circuit and parameters, the low-pass filters are designed and implemented. The experimental results show excellent agreement with theoretical results and the validity of the modeling method for the proposed defected ground unit structure.

Abstract: Wave digital filters (WDFs) are modeled after classical filters, preferably in lattice or ladder configurations or generalizations thereof. They have very good properties concerning coefficient accuracy requirements, dynamic range, and especially all aspects of stability under finite-arithmetic conditions. A detailed review of WDF theory is given. For this several goals are set: to offer an introduction for those not familiar with the subject, to stress practical aspects in order to serve as a guide for those wanting to design or apply WDFs, and to give insight into the broad range of aspects of WDF theory and its many relationships with other areas, especially in the signal-processing field. Correspondingly, mathematical analyses are included only if necessary for gaining essential insight, while for all details of more special nature reference is made to existing literature.

TL;DR: An ultrawideband 3.1-10.6-GHz low-noise amplifier employing an input three-section band-pass Chebyshev filter using a 0.18-/spl mu/m CMOS process achieves a power gain of 9.3 dB with an input match of -10 dB over the band.
Abstract: An ultrawideband 3.1-10.6-GHz low-noise amplifier employing an input three-section band-pass Chebyshev filter is presented. Fabricated in a 0.18-/spl mu/m CMOS process, the IC prototype achieves a power gain of 9.3 dB with an input match of -10 dB over the band, a minimum noise figure of 4 dB, and an IIP3 of -6.7 dBm while consuming 9 mW.

Abstract: Immittance, transfer, and scattering characteristics are studied for acoustic surface wave transducers of the interdigital electrode form. Linear network models are used to represent the transducer as a chain of identical three-ports which are acoustically in cascade but electrically in parallel. Transducer operation at acoustic synchronism is described theoretically and compared to current experimental data for transducers operating at 100 MHz and fabricated on lithium niobate. Favorable lithium niobate configurations for efficient, broad-band transducer operation are given. Scattering characteristics as a function of electric load are discussed. Low values of acoustic reflection loss are predicted theoretically and observed experimentally when the electric load and transducer capacitance are in resonance. The frequency dependence of transducer radiation immittance is studied, and the response is found to be analogous to the response of an endfire antenna array.
