In this paper, a double tapered fractal electromagnetic bandgap (DT-FEBG) technique in planar CPW structure is proposed and analyzed. The DT-FEBG structure of CPW not only improves the pass band performance but also generates two distant band-gaps. The fractal structure is realized by replacing the etched rectangular holes with a Minkowski loop generator. High resistivity silicon substrate and MEMS surface micromachining process are employed. The DTFEBG structure shows insertion loss of less than 1.3 dB and the stop band rejection of around 44 dB.
