The conditions for the optimal non-reciprocal operation of longitudinally magnetised ferrite-coupled line (FCL) are obtained for the first time from the scattering-matrix treatment, and the necessary conditions for the multicomponent reciprocal network joint with a FCL section to be a circulator are specified. Using these optimal conditions, the minimum length of the FCL is also found. A self-biasing circulator with the minimum length of FCL at millimetre-wave frequency is reported and its scattering characteristics are simulated and discussed.
