Abstract

It is common practice to design multiway power dividers by interconnecting two-way power dividers. Transmission lines are used to link the two-way dividers. This paper investigates the performance of the interconnected power divider and the effects of the interconnecting transmission lines. In particular, it will be shown that the performance of multiway dividers constructed by interconnecting even-number-section two-way dividers deteriorates significantly as the number of output ports increases. The interconnecting lines can be used to improve the performance of such dividers.
