Abstract

A transmission line transformer, TLT, utilizes the fact that the transient pulse is shorter than the transmission lines. This allows for voltage summation by connecting transmission lines in parallel at one end and in series at the other end 1). Due to geometry changes at interconnections mismatches occur. To reduce mismatching, a TLT is presented based on parallel plate transmission lines 3). These allow for better matched interconnections in the TLT as well as to external structures because they are not encapsulated by one of their conductors. Numerical simulations 4) are used to evaluate a design for its efficiency.
