A six-port junction based on the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) technology is proposed and presented. In this design of such a junction, the SIW is first converted to an equivalent rectangular waveguide, then regular rectangular waveguide design techniques are used. In this structure, an SIW power divider and SIW hybrid 3-dB coupler are designed as fundamental building blocks. A six-port junction circuit operating at 24 GHz is fabricated and measured. Good agreement between simulated and measured results is found for the proposed six-port junction.
