Abstract

A novel wideband bandpass-to-all-stop reconfigurable filtering power divider is proposed in this study, which allows for four-order bandpass-to-all-stop reconfigurable operating function and equal power division. Its circuit configuration includes the cascaded coupled-line sections with tight coupling to extend the impedance transforming. Furthermore, with the introduction of the half-wavelength open-circuit stubs, which controls the bandwidth, extra transmission poles located at the cut-off frequency are generated, thus resulting in high frequency selectivity. Moreover, by using a single resistor between input coupled-lines, the high all-passband isolation can be achieved. The grounding are then loaded to the output coupled-lines to enable bandpass-to-all-stop operating functionality. For demonstration, a prototype operating at 2 GHz is designed, simulated, and measured with a 15 dB bandwidth of 51%, 19 dB stopband rejection up to 5 GHz, and 14.5 dB all-passband isolation, which shows a good agreement between the simulated and measured results.
