In this paper, a simple synthesis procedure to design planar electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structures is proposed. It is based on the consideration of the excess of inductance of a patterned plane with respect to a solid one. The planar EBG structure is sized from the bandgap starting and ending frequencies, and few others specifications employing a closed form formulation. The proposed method is also suitable for the design of embedded planar EBG. The procedure is validated by using measured and numerically computed results.
