Miniaturized microstrip wilkinson power divider with capacitor loading



A novel miniaturized microstrip Wilkinson power divider with capacitor loading is presented in this article. The new divider not only effectively reduces the occupied area to 45% of the conventional one at 1.0 GHz, but also has good harmonic suppression performance. Furthermore, the new structure has only two variable parameters and can be easily designed. The design is validated both by simulation and measurement. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
