The transition between a grounded coplanar waveguide (GCPW) and a substrate integrated rectangular waveguide (SIRW) is investigated in this paper. The proposed scheme makes use of a current probe to transfer power between the two dissimilar transmission lines. A computer-aided-design-oriented analytical model is developed in order to optimize the geometrical dimensions of the transition. By using the GCPW instead of the microstrip line to interface the SIRW, substrate thickness can be increased without incurring a penalty due to transmission loss. Therefore, it is possible to achieve higher Q components. Experiments at 28 GHz show that an effective bandwidth of 10% can easily be obtained. The insertion loss is less than 0.73 dB over the bandwidth of interest.
