Design of transition from WR-15 to inverted microstrip gap waveguide
Paper i proceeding, 2016

Currently gap waveguide technology has revealed strong competitiveness for millimeter wave wireless applications. Specifically, this new topology of waveguide technology provides advantages of low loss, high quality factor and easy RF packaging. In this paper we present the design methodology of millimeter-wave transition from standard WR-15 rectangular waveguide to inverted microstrip gap waveguide. Furthermore, a more practical power divider from standard WR-15 rectangular waveguide to inverted microstrip gap waveguide is also introduced. Both structures are vertical and there is no additional need for any complex modification of the waveguide structure to achieve compatibility between the two structures. The proposed two transitions cover the whole unlicensed 60 GHz band from 57 to 66 GHz in order to be widely utilized as an interface between gap waveguide feed networks and equipment components with WR-15 ports. The simulated results show promising S-parameters.
