Abstract : This report describes a waveguide to microstrip transition for transferring guided electromagnetic signals from dominant mode rectangular waveguide to microstrip line and vice versa. A microstrip printed circuit card is disposed in parallel to the narrow walls of a waveguide. The printed circuit card includes a microstrip stepped transformer section followed by a linear taper crossover section. The linear taper crossover section leads into a microstrip line conductor and ground plane for completing the transition.
