In this paper, fast, accurate, and simple analytic closed-form expressions are presented in order to calculate the quasi-TEM parameters of multilayer elliptical coplanar stripline (CPS), multilayer cylindrical CPS, and multilayer CPS, with finite dielectric dimensions by using conformal mapping techniques. The obtained computer-aided-design-oriented expressions are quite accurate and easy to apply in designing microwave integrated circuits and antenna applications. The results have also been compared with the ones of another conformal mapping method available in the literature and also confirmed analytically.
