In this paper, the distortion characteristics of an electrical pulse which has a rise/fall time due to the dispersion and the reflection, on nonuniform tapered microstrip lines has investigated in time domain. The transmission characteristics on uniform microstrip lines in time domain had represented already, but the results for the nonuniform tapered microstrip lines not represented yet. We investigated the transmission characteristics for pulse signal on the nonuniform tapered microstrip lines, and the result applied to design of wide band impedance matching circuit in design of MMIC. The voltage and current transfer functions are shown for the tapered line. The dispersion and distortion obtained by using these transfer functions are represented for the nonideal square pulse.
