This paper presents the design of a novel power-divider circuit with an unequal power-dividing ratio. Unlike the conventional approaches, the characteristic impedance values of all the branch lines involved are independent of the dividing ratio. The electrical lengths of the line sections are the only circuit parameters to be adjusted. Moreover, the proposed structure does not require impedance transformers at the two output ports. By the introduction of a transmission line between one of the output ports and the isolation resistor, a flexible layout design with reduced parasitic coupling is achieved. For verification, the measured results of a 2 : 1 and a 4 : 1 power-divider circuits operating at 1 GHz are given. A relative bandwidth of over 20% is obtained based on a return loss and port isolation requirement of -20 dB.
