EuMW 2013 MicroApps - Design and Optimization of 3D Connectors

In this presentation, the task of optimizing a coax-to-microstrip transition at a specified design frequency will be showcased. The goal is to maximize the transmission of energy from the coax TEM mode into the microstrip quasi-TEM mode. Addtionally, some useful tips to achieve the goal will be demonstrated as well as demonstrating how the optimized and parameterized transition model can be conveniently used as part of any future Microwave Office design.
