Design of Reconfigurable 2 Way Wilkinson Power Divider for WLAN Applications

Authors: G. Kalpanadevi, S. Ravimaran, M. Shanmugapriya


A Reconfigurable Wilkinson power divider is proposed in this paper. In existing system only a limited number of bandwidth is used at the output ports, in the proposed Wilkinson power divider different band of frequencies are obtained by using PIN diode. By tuning the PIN diode, different frequencies are achieved. The size of the power divider is reduced for the operating frequency and increases the fractional bandwidth.

Keywords: Isolation loss, PIN diode, Reconfigurable Wilkinson power divider and WLAN applications.
