This paper describes transmission line couplers for non-contact connecters. Their characteristics are formulated in closed forms and design methodologies are presented. As their applications, three different types of transmission line couplers, two-fold transmission line coupler, single-ended to differential conversion transmission line coupler, and rotatable transmission line coupler are reviewed.
