Abstract

In this paper, a new fully symmetrical four-port microstrip crossover and its dual-frequency application are presented. The proposed single-band crossover has a simple structure and an easily controlled bandwidth; and its dual-frequency application can provide flexible frequency ratio between the two working frequencies. Moreover, analytical design equations are derived using the even-odd-mode method. The final explicit design equations are concise. To verify the design concepts, both a single-band crossover working at 1 GHz and a dual-frequency crossover working at 1/2.3 GHz are fabricated and tested. The measurement results agree well with the design theory.
