Abstract

Millimeter-wave application in intelligent vehicle sensor and others has been in great demand recently for it's small size, high data rate and high resolution property. In this paper, we report our design and simulation of an antipodal online to broadside coupled suspended substrate stripline (BCSSS) transition to be used in a millimeter-wave mixer. In our finline balanced mixer design, the LO power was coupled to the mixer diodes through this transition. The antipodal finline served as an impedance transformer between the WR-28 waveguide impedance of 480Ω and the BCSSS bandpass filter impedance of 50Ω. Both the fingaps, i.e., between the antipodal tapered finlines and the WR-28 waveguide as well as between antipodal tapered finlines and BCSSS bandpass filter were varied to achieve optimum impedance matching. Antipodal finline to BCSSS bandpass filter transition designed in this paper has a minimum insertion loss at 26GHz.
