A Novel Dual-Band Π-Shaped Branch-Line Coupler with Stepped-Impedance Stubs
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 25, 11-20, 2011
Abstract
A novel compact branch-line coupler operating in two arbitrary frequencies is proposed, analyzed and designed. Stepped-impedance stubs are used in the branch-line coupler to achieve dual-band applications. Parameters of the structure are chosen and provided for design guidelines. Broader operating frequency ratios and compactness are achievable. For the purpose of validation, a microstrip coupler operating at 2.4/5.2 GHz is fabricated and measured.
