Low Loss Skip Layer Transmission Lines with Common Mode Filtering for Packages

Durgun, Ahmet Cemal
Aygun, Kemal
IEEETo address the increasing bandwidth demand in chip-to-chip communication, data rates of high-speed serial input/output interfaces have been aggressively increasing, which tightens the available packaging electrical budgets for channel loss and noise. Enabling a cost effective and a high-volume manufacturing compatible solution to improve these metrics is of great importance. In this paper, we expand on the recently introduced skip-layer based transmission line (TL) technology with simultaneous common mode (CM) filtering properties, which can address both of these challenges simultaneously. The TL is composed of periodic repetitions of narrow and wide sections, which generates a CM impedance contrast to filter out the CM noise, while differential impedance is kept constant by locally voiding the planes below and above the wide trace sections. Because of the wider sections, the loss is also smaller. We provide a theoretical discussion of the CM filtering using Bloch’s Theory on periodic structures. We also provide an analytical formulation, which utilizes quasi-static assumption, for crosstalk control. Finally, we demonstrate the electrical performance of this new TL technology with both numerical and experimental data in frequency and time domains and provide design guidelines to address some of the practical aspects of real-world applications.

High-power 20-100-MHz linear and efficient power-amplifier design
Sahan, Necip; Inal, Mehmet Erim; Dernir, Simsek; Toker, Canan (2008-09-01)
This paper presents modeling and analysis of the realization of high-power broadband RF power amplifiers (PAs) and power combiners. In the scope of the study, a model is proposed for a transmission line with a ferrite core, which is the basic building block for the transmission line transformers (TLTs) used in broadband high-power amplifiers and power combiner/divider networks as a building block. Simulated performances of the designed networks using the proposed model possess high conformity with the empir...
High data rate X-band transmitter for low Earth orbit satellites
Sunay, Hacer K.; Ismailoglu, Neslin; Kirilmaz, Tunahan; Dudak, Celal; Sen, Ozlem A. (2007-04-26)
Main purpose of this study is to design a transmitter with data rates up to 100 Mbps, having QPSK/OQPSK modulation and 7 W (38.5 dBm) output power at 8.2 GHz. This output power satisfies the link budget for a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite at 700 km, utilizing required source-channel coding schemes in baseband for a BER performance of 10(-6). The modulation scheme of the transmitter can be selected as BPSK, QPSK or OQPSK. In addition to QPSK/OQPSK modulation scheme choice, the transmitter will have three d...
Impact of Defected Ground Structures on the Bandwidth of Branch Line Hybrids
Polater, Ahmet Mert; Nesimoglu, Tayfun (2015-12-02)
This paper investigates the impact of defected ground structures (DGS) on the operational bandwidth of microwave circuits. Branch line hybrids were selected to investigate DGS. Three types of branch line hybrids were studied with both hardware and simulation results; a standard branch line hybrid, one using tapered lines and another one using DGS. An optimum model in terms of location, size and number of DGS has been proposed to achieve the widest operational bandwidth. Not only by simulation results, but a...
Unfolded Hybrid Beamforming With GAN Compressed Ultra-Low Feedback Overhead
Balevi, Eren; Andrews, Jeffrey G. (2021-12-01)
Optimizing a hybrid beamforming transmitter is a non-convex problem and requires channel state information, leading in most cases to nontrivial feedback overhead. We propose a methodology relying on the principles of deep generative models and unfolding to achieve near-optimal hybrid beamforming with reduced feedback and computational complexity. We first represent the channel as a low-dimensional manifold via a generative adversarial network (GAN) and search the optimum digital and analog precoders in this...
Zero-day attack detection with deep learning
Çakır, Berna; Angın, Pelin; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
The rise of the IoT paradigm in the past decade has resulted in an unprecedented number of zero-day attacks launched against IoT systems, which are capable of causing major damages. Deep learning has recently become a popular technique for many learning tasks including intrusion detection, with high potential to detect zero-day attacks in addition to ones with well-known signatures. In this thesis, we analyzed the efficacy of supervised and unsupervised deep learning algorithms for detecting zero-day attack...
