Mm-Wave contactless connection for MMIC integration in gap waveguides
Paper in proceedings, 2016

A contactless, broadband and low-loss microstrip-to-groove gap waveguide transition operating at W-band is presented. The principle of operation is based on transforming EM fields from the SIW to the ridge gap waveguide mode via electromagnetic coupling. This is advantageous, since the proposed solution avoids the use of metal contact between the SIW and one of the waveguide parts. Furthermore, metamaterial-based gap waveguide technology provides a resonance-free packaging solution.
