Abstract
This paper proposes an unequal power divider with different terminated impedances and different electrical lengths for four uniform transmission lines. The proposed power divider consists of four transmission lines with different electrical lengths and an isolation resistor. Under different port impedances, the splitting ratio of the proposed divider can be adjusted to desired values by varying the electrical lengths of the divider transmission lines with uniform impedances. To verify the feasibility of the proposed divider, two circuits were designed with dividing ratios of 2:1 and 4:1 at an operating frequency of 2 GHz. The circuits used a uniform impedance of 40 Ω at terminated impedances of 50, 70, and 60 Ω. The performance showed excellent agreement between the simulated and experimental results.
