Accurate and very simple synthesis formulas for the microcoplanar strip (MCS) lines are presented. They are very useful for microwave engineers to easily and accurately compute the physical dimension of MCS lines. The coefficients in the synthesis formulas are determined with the use of artificial bee colony algorithm. The results of the synthesis formulas are compared with the results of respective quasi-static analysis, other synthesis formulas, and experimental works available in the literature to show the validation of synthesis formulas presented in this article. The average percentage error is calculated 3.07% for 864 MCS line samples having different electrical parameters and physical dimensions. (C) 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
