This work presents the design of a planar ultra-wideband (UWB) four-way power divider/combiner. A prototype has been fabricated on a printed circuit board and characterized. For achieving the frequency response required in UWB applications, each branch of the divider is conceived as a three-section Chebyshev impedance transformer. The defected ground… CONTINUE READING
