Abstract

A compact tri-band power divider based on triple-mode resonator is proposed in this paper. This tri-mode resonator comprises a conventional half-wavelength resonator, a short stub and an open stub. The interdigital coupled-lines are introduced at the input and the output to improve the performance of this power divider. The proposed tri-band power divider working at 1.57 GHz, 2.45 GHz, 3.50 GHz is simulated and fabricated, and good agreement between the simulated results and the measured results are observed.
