A composite right/left-handed (CRLH) transmission line with demultiplexing property is proposed towards short-range functional wireless interconnects. The CRLH line is designed by analyzing dispersion relation of the microstrip line having a split-ring and a double-stub structure to realize frequency selective properties for leaky wave radiation. A prototype device is fabricated and estimated to study feasibility of the demultiplexing operation around ten GHz.
