Selected References

  1. B. Wadell, "Transmission Line Design Handbook", Artech House, 1991.


While it is a useful book, the Wadell book contains many typographical errors which is understanding giving the sheer volume of complex equations. As a result, it is important to obtain as many of the references as possible when refering to this book. The equations for coplanar waveguide losses, and in particular the dielectric losses, contain some typographical errors and those have been corrected in wcalc (and commented in the code).
