Dual-Band Equal/Unequal Wilkinson Power Dividers Based on Coupled-Line Section with Short-Circuited Stub
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 111, 163-178, 2011
Abstract
This paper presents dual-band equal/unequal Wilkinson power dividers based on a coupled-line section with short-circuited stub (called as the ``coupled-line section" for short), which consists of a pair of parallel coupled lines and a short-circuited stub. With the analyses of the phase shift and equivalent characteristic impedance, the coupled-line section is used to replace the quarter-wavelength branch line in the conventional equal/unequal Wilkinson power divider to obtain excellent dual-band operation. The closed-form equations and design procedures of dual-band Wilkinson power divider are given, where one degree of design freedom is obtained and design flexibility is shown. As two examples, a dual-band equal Wilkinson power divider with the frequency ratio of 1.8:1 and an unequal one with the high power dividing ratio of 7:1 and frequency ratio of 1.8:1 are designed, fabricated and measured. The measurements are in good agreement with the simulations. It is shown that the proposed power dividers have simple topologies, and can be easily fabricated with small frequency ratios and high power dividing ratios.
