Design of Novel Compact Coupled Microstrip Power Divider With Harmonic Suppression

A new microstrip power divider (PD) is proposed which consists of a pair of parallel coupled-lines (PCLs) on a defected ground, and its two outputs are connected by a resistor and a capacitor. The even/odd-mode analysis shows that the defected ground structure (DGS) etched on the ground plane of PCL is equivalent to a strong parallel resonance circuit in… CONTINUE READING
