Abstract

A new design of a wideband Wilkinson power divider using double-sided parallel strip line technique is presented in this paper. To obtain a good isolation value, the proposed design was integrated with three isolation resistors. The proposed power divider is designed for a wide range of frequencies between 2 GHz to 6 GHz with all the ports matched to 50 Ω. The conventional quarter wavelength arms are divided to three different widths to ensure wideband capabilities. Moreover, the novelty of the proposed design come from the double-sided parallel-strip line technique where proposed design is using similar structure at both the top and bottom layers to ensure balance of transmission. All dimensions for the transmission line section were optimized to achieve wideband operation and were integrated with a lumped element. This design can be used as a double-sided feeder for a microstrip antenna.
