A Compact n -Way Wilkinson Power Divider Using a Novel Coaxial Cable Implementation for VHF Band

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 62, 49-55, 2016
Abstract
A novel implementation of N-way Wilkinson power divider using series and parallel combination of coaxial cables has been proposed in this paper. This arrangement results in a very compact power divider at VHF and lower frequencies, has good isolation between all the ports and is capable of handling high power with a low insertion loss. Frequency tuning and phase equalisation are easily accomplished using this technique. The measured results on fabricated 7-way and 4-way power dividers exhibited good input and output matching as well as amplitude and phase balance with an overall length of less than λ/8 at 221 MHz, with potential for further reduction in length.
