The primary objective of the thesis research is to study novel schemes of on-chip crosstalk suppression employing magnetic films at microwave frequencies. Since extraction of various material properties of the magnetic films is essential for successful application of the proposed method, the research also involves development of a new material characterization technique using a grounded coplanar waveguide configuration. The novel material characterization method allows simultaneous extraction of complex permeability, permittivity, saturation magnetization and resonance line-width of magnetic films for microwave applications. Material characteristics have been extracted from the full-wave EM simulations using only S-parameters for three different ferrite samples over the frequency range of 1 to 10 GHz for different applied external DC magnetic fields. The extracted parameters have been compared with the input parameters as well as with the theoretical calculations based on previously reported research and were found to be in excellent agreement. Crosstalk suppression is achieved by placing a magnetic film between circui
