Q-Factor Evaluation of Spiral Inductor for 5.8GHz WiMAX Application

New discovery material which contradicted in physic law known as metamaterial has been designed. It is the combination of the normal material (GaAs) with the unique structure. Computer Simulation Technology (CST) software has been used to design and simulate three-dimensional structure. Negative permittivity of material with split ring structure embedded in it has been used as a substrate for an inductor design. In a typical amplifier MMIC, up to 80% of chip area is occupied by inductors. Eagerness and inspired toward miniaturization, compact spiral inductors has been developed. These miniaturized inductors are constructed using a combination of three metal and three polyimide layers on a metamaterial substrate alternately.
