Abstract

This work proposes an approach for
manufacturing of high precision ungrounded coplanar
waveguides as high speed interconnections for flexible and
wearable sensor as well as IoT systems. Characterization of
these printed transmission lines up to a frequency of 24 GHz
reveals an insertion loss of up to 8 dB/cm and therefore provides
practical advice towards realizable line lengths. Although
exhibiting approximately 4 times the attenuation as compared
to conventionally manufactured flexible PCB transmission lines,
the proposed approach allows for selectively realizing highly
precise structures where necessary. Moreover, it is applicable on
three-dimensional substrates, such as 3D-MIDs and therefore
addresses various future applications.
