Printed transition for SIW horn antennas - Analytical model

A printed transition is proposed to overcome problems limiting the performances of SIW horn antennas when built in thin substrates (thickness <λ 0/10). An analytical model to analyze its behavior is given along with design guidelines. The development of a possible transmission line model is also presented. This transition is associated with a H-plane sectoral SIW horn antenna to both show the validity of the proposed model and the significant improvements it can bring in terms of matching, bandwidth and radiation. © 2012 IEEE.
