Abstract:
A generalized two-way coupled-line power divider with extended ports for dual band is proposed in this paper. The power divider is composed of two section coupled-lines, one conventional transmission line, and an isolation resistor, and employs extension of a transmission line or coupled-line at each port. The design equations are obtained based on even- and odd-mode analysis, and analytical ideal closed-form scattering parameter expressions derived. Because the traditional ring structure is a special case of coupled line, four cases of this generalized power divider are discussed and compared. In addition, the six power dividers simulated results of three special cases are shown. Finally, three fabricated power dividers measurements are used to certify this proposed structure and corresponding design parameters.
