Many types of coupled structures are used to design microwave filters and equalizers. One such structure is the array of coupled parallel commensurate conductors called a meander line. There are several analysis techniques that may be used to find the equivalent circuit of a meander line. However, these do not provide exact design equations. In this paper, meander-line networks are analyzed and synthesized using the graph-transformation technique. The equivalent circuits of one- and two-port meander-line networks will be developed by using the transformation method, and it will be shown that meander-line networks can be easily designed by using the electronic computer.
