Abstract

In this paper, the design method of the meander-coupled Wilkinson power divider with slit is proposed. Because the electrical performance of this structure is varied with each coupling distance and the slit's size, a tedious design work, which is done by trial and error correction, is required to determine the values of parameters for the best suitable operation. To solve this problems, therefore, an experimental design formulas for optimum performance are presented by curve fitting, under the desired center frequency($f_0$). As the example using the proposed design equation, we designed and fabricated the meander-coupled divider at $f_0$=1.5 GHz. It has better electrical performance and measured results also agrees very well that of the simulated. From these observation, it can be concluded that the obtained design formulas are useful for design of this divider.
