Based on the double-sided parallel-strip lines with an inserted conductor as a virtual ground, a high power divider with dual-band/broadband response and frequencyindependent 180 degree phase difference between the output ports is implemented in this paper. The circuit topology employs a single commercially available external isolation resistor as well as moderate line impedances (15–100 ohm), making it suitable for high-power applications. Precise closed-form design equations on the basis of even- and odd-mode analysis are derived. In addition to the wide range of frequency band ratios from 1 to 2.65, broadband response is also obtained by selecting the proper value of frequency band ratios. To substantiate the design equations and theory, a circuit with 2:1 frequency ratio and 84.5% bandwidth referring to 16 dB isolation and 12 dB return loss values is developed. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the widest bandwidth reported for out-of-phase high power dividers.
