In this paper, a stripline model is presented for coupled signal lines routed between a power and a ground plane based on multiconductor transmission line (MTL) theory. Through a suitable diagonalization of the MTL equations for striplines, the transverse electromagnetic (TEM) parallel-plate mode is decoupled from the stripline mode. In this way, stripline models that are obtained assuming ideal planes at ground potential can be extended to take into account the nonideal behavior of the planes. The presented model is applied to represent mode conversion due to vias, holes in the reference planes, and terminations of the stripline. Influence of inhomogeneous media is discussed.
