Abstract

The three-dimensional alternating transmission line matrix scheme (ATLM) is applied to the modelling of coplanar waveguide discontinuities. In the ATLM scheme the TLM cells are subdivided into two subsets of mutually neighbouring cells. Within each time step the state of one subset of cells is computed from the states of the neighbouring cells at the previous time step. Compared with existing TLM schemes the numerical effort as well as the storage requirements are reduced by up to 50% without loss of accuracy. Furthermore, spurious solutions occurring in existing TLM schemes can be avoided by ATLM.
