Abstract

This session highlights recent advances in 3D printed RF components and interconnects. A squeezed spherical cavity is presented that uses a rectangular slot for higher order mode suppression. Then an integrated transition between suspended rectangular coaxial lines to rectangular waveguide is shown. Novel interconnects including a laser-enhanced direct-printed CPW line operating up to 110 GHz is demonstrated, while a coaxial-to-two parallel wireline is tested up to 40 GHz. The session concludes with a novel helical-based microstrip transmission line enabling phase implementation in fixed length structures.

Abstract

This session features papers that focus on novel RF components and modules that have been realized using additive manufacturing techniques. One paper focuses on an origami frequency selective surface structure that is integrated with thermal actuation mechanisms. A second origami design is based on a 3D-printed foldable substrate. The third paper is a microfluidics-based 3D-printed Butler matrix in coaxial technology. The session concludes with a demonstration of an embedded-on-package 5G energy harvester system.
