Three new classes of miniaturized Marchand balun are defined based on the synthesis of filter prototypes. They are suitable for mixed lumped-distributed planar realizations with small size resulting from transmission-line resonators being a quarter-wavelength long at frequencies higher than the passband center frequency. Each class corresponds to an S-plane bandpass prototype derived from the specification of transmission zero locations. A tunable 50:100-Ω balun is realized at 1 GHz to demonstrate the advantages of the approach presented here.
