The improved version of a broadband microstrip-to-slotline transition is presented. The transition consists of a microstrip radial stub, a slot radial stub, and a multisection matching transformer. An extremely large angle slot radial stub is introduced into the design to reduce radiation loss and maximize the field converting around the microstrip-slotline tee junction. From experimental results, the improved transition has greater bandwidth and lower loss than the earlier designs. With the… CONTINUE READING
