A Miniaturized Gysel Power Divider/Combiner Using Planar Artificial Transmission Line
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 51, 79-86, 2014
Abstract
A miniaturized Gysel power divider/combiner(PDC) based on planar artificial transmission line (ATL) is presented in this paper. This planar ATL is composed of microstrip quasi-lumped elements and their discontinuities, and the ATL is capable of synthesizing microstrip line with various characteristic impedances and electrical lengths. For demonstration, the simulated and experimental results of the proposed PDC @1 GHz implemented on microstrip are given. Experimental results of the designed PDC agree well with the theoretical predictions. The proposed Gysel PDC circuit not only demonstrates low insertion loss at the fundamental frequency with compact size and high frequency suppression features, but also maintains Gysel PDC's high power-handling advantage. The occupied sizes of the proposed Gysel PDC are merely about 40% of the conventional Gysel PDC.
