This paper presents a technique for miniaturization of microstrip line and coplanar waveguide for microwave integrated circuits by using airbridge technology. A theoretical analysis is given by a combination of the conformal mapping technique and the variational principle. Numerical results demonstrate significant effects on size reduction as well as wide range of the characteristic impedance variation due to the airbridge.
