We propose an isolation network to simultaneously improve the input return loss, output return loss and isolation of the Wilkinson power divider in a wide bandwidth. The required even mode and odd mode reflection coefficients of the isolation network are calculated. Constructed even and odd mode circuits are combined to give the desired isolation network. Analytical expressions for the optimal component values for a single-section divider are given. Compared with the single-section Wilkinson… CONTINUE READING
