CPW can have some bizarre mode problems that are not intuitive. Particularly,
large multilayer structures. What's ground, and what's not is frequently the
issue. Also getting a clean, mode free, launch is a bigger problem then with
microstrip or stripline. Dimensional tolerances are much tighter also. We did
it with thin film on ceramic.
The old software that I used along time ago (equation based) left a lot to be
desired. Cut and try was the order of the day. New 3D solvers should help a
