In spite of the fact that electromagnetic band gap (EBG) structures have become very important part for switching noise management in mixed-signal systems, antenna applications, and filter applications, there has been no design tool for EBG structures. Consequently, electromagnetic (EM) simulation has been iterated to design an EBG structure for a given design specification. As a result, designing EBG structures has been computationally expensive as well as time consuming. This paper presents a design tool for EBG structures in mixed signal applications where digital is combined with RF. The suggested design tool has been fully automated by combining genetic algorithm (GA), multilayer finite-difference method (M-FDM), and dispersion diagram analysis method together.
