Abstract

In this article, new, and accurate synthesis formulas to compute the physical dimensions of open supported coplanar waveguides (OS-CPWs) are presented. The synthesis formulas are obtained with the use of differential evolution (DE) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms. They are useful for the computer-aided design of OS-CPWs. The average percentage errors of the synthesis formulas obtained by using DE and PSO algorithms are computed to be 1.26% and 1.67%, respectively, for 4560 OS-CPW samples having different electrical parameters and physical dimensions, as compared with the results of quasi-static analysis.
