The more familiar version with the space between the two plates completely filled with dielectric was originally produced by Sanders Associates who marketed it under the brand name of triplate. One means of effecting a low-reflection bend, is to curve the path of the strip in an arc of radius at least 3 times the strip-width. It is fair to mount chip on suspended stripline. Striplinenow used as a generic term, was originally a proprietary brand of Airborne Instruments Laboratory Inc.

However, most of these are applicable to only a limited range of aspect-ratios, or else cover the entire range piecewise.

In certain cases radial stubs of different types series and shunt are employed. Microwave components such as antennascouplersfilterspower dividers etc. These include bends, T-junction, cross-junction, step in width, coupling and open ends. It is fair to mount chip using this type of transmission line. To prevent the propagation of unwanted modes, the two ground planes must be shorted together.
