Highly dense supercomponents are the basic building blocks of every radar, EW or military communication systems. The demand for lower volume, lower weight and increased function has spurred developers to integrate more open-carrier devices within the same supercomponent. The carrier-to-carrier transition has a major effect on channel-to-channel isolation and performance. This article is a study of the effects of two major carrier-to-carrier transition types: microstrip and (grounded coplanar waveguide. Ground regime design rules are concluded from the results.
