The present paper treats the analysis and design method of the (H)NRD guide and E-plane rectangular waveguide integrated structures on the basis of the transverse resonance technique. The analysis is made by assuming a resonant cavity short-circuited at appropriate reference planes and considering the cavity as a waveguide discontinuity problem in the transverse direction. The resonant lengths are determined from the transverse equivalent circuit, and the scattering parameters are calculated from the lengths. We analyze (H)NRD discontinuities and design two types of HNRD guide to E-plane waveguide transitions and a directional coupler composed of HNRD and E-plane waveguide. The theoretical results are in good agreement with results calculated by an EM-simulator.
