Abstract

A 1:16 Wilkinson power divider (WPD) working from 1.3 GHz to 3 GHz is presented in this paper. Equal power division, phase and amplitude consistency is achieved among the output ports. The proposed design has a wideband with a 10 dB fractional bandwidth of 76%. The isolation loss within the bandwidth is better than 15 dB and the insertion loss is less than 2 dB. The size of the WPD has been minimized to 16×10.7 cm 2 , which was the main objective of this work. The compact size of the proposed design makes it a suitable candidate for feeding phased antenna arrays for wideband operations.
