The finite-difference time-domain method is applied to the analysis of transmission lines on printed circuit boards. The lossy, dispersive behavior of the dielectric substrate is accurately accounted for by means of several algorithms whose accuracy is discussed and compared. Numerical results are validated by comparisons with measurements and an equivalent circuit of slot in the ground plane is proposed.
