Minimizing return loss at the receiver is important for communication systems. An aim of this paper was to characterize the striplines surrounded with the ground guards or crossing different types of ground slot on the multilayer package using the 3D full-wave simulator. Results showed that the striplines crossing the ground slot were characterized with larger inductance, capacitance, coupling coefficient, and mutual capacitance. We do not recommend that the ground guards be surrounded to the stripline traces if the return loss is a major concern.
