Title: High-frequency line-waveguide converter having the HF line terminated within an opening portion

Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide a high-frequency line-waveguide converter in which a distance between a grounding conductor and a radiating conductor and a thickness of a dielectric layer of a high-frequency line can be freely set. A high-frequency line-waveguide converter for converting a high-frequency line to a waveguide comprises a high-frequency line including a first dielectric layer; a line conductor; and a grounding conductor; an opening portion of the grounding conductor; a second dielectric layer; a radiating conductor; a connecting conductor; a shielding conductor portion; and a waveguide.
