A Compact SIW Power Divider for Dual-Band Applications
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, a novel design of highly compact power divider employing substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW) is proposed for dual-band applications. The double-ring asymmetric complimentary split-ring resonators (CSRRs) are utilized to obtain dual-band operation. The asymmetric double-ring CSRRs create mixed magnetic and electric coupling resulting two distinct resonating frequencies which exhibits bandpass behaviour below the resonating frequency of the cavity. The resonating passbands can be designed individually by varying the dimensions of the proposed CSRRs. In addition, the position of output ports can be varied to achieve arbitrary power division. To demonstrate the proposed analysis, three prototypes (two equal power division and one unequal power division) of dual-band SIW power dividers are designed and fabricated. Measurement performance provides a good consistency with that of simulated one. The circuit areas of the fabricated prototypes 1, 2 and 3 excluding microstrip transitions are 0.053λg2, 0.088λg2 and 0.033λg2, respectively. The proposed design process exhibits dual-band performance with smaller circuit-area, suitable isolation and hence appropriate for dual-band communication services.
