Novel reduced-size lumped-element coplanar waveguide-to-coplanar stripline transitions are proposed, using the planar parallel inductor-capacitor (LC) circuits to realize an effective open circuit. A simple equivalent-circuit model is also established, from which characteristics of various lumped-element transition structures are examined. Specifically, lumped-element transitions with bandwidth ranging from 1.8:1 to 3:1 and 1/12 the size of conventional ones can be achieved.
