This paper reports on a small size broadband lumped element balun suitable for integration in MMICs. The design is an extension of the well known lattice balun, which independent of frequency has 180/spl deg/ phase difference between the output ports, but suffers from a narrow amplitude bandwidth. It is shown how the amplitude bandwidth of the lattice balun may be improved by replacing inductors with low-pass T-sections, and the capacitors with high-pass T-sections. Scalable closed-form design… CONTINUE READING
