2013 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Part 1: Regular Papers, ISSN 1549-8328, Vol. 60, no 3, 540-547 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A triplexer for ultra-wideband radio implemented entirely with distributed microstrips is presented. The triplexer is composed of a triplex junction network and three bandpass filters. The circuit is integrated in a flex-rigid printed circuit board. Three flat 1 GHz sub-bands in the frequency band 6-9 GHz have been achieved. The group delay variation within each 1 GHz sub-band was measured to be less than 0.4 ns. A good agreement between simulation and measurement was obtained, e.g., less than 0.3 dB difference in the forward transmission in the majority of the frequency band.
