A novel uniplanar electromagnetic bandgap unit cell design with reduced spurious radiation
Laubscher E. ; Geschke R.H. (2008)
Article
We present a novel electromagnetic bandgap structure with reduced spurious radiation properties. The application presented here is the wideband suppression of parasitic parallelplate modes on multilayer printed circuit boards. We use a well known unitcell design as a benchmark for the new structure. Two optimized configurations highlight unit cell design aspects.
