We report on the measured mmwave (67-110GHz) performance of Coplanar Waveguide components on GaAs substrates as a function of substrate thickness, for calibration and circuit applications in W-band and D-band. W-band measurements show improved mmwave performance of transmission lines and short circuit elements on thinner substrates.
