A novel planar magic-T using an E-plane substrate integrate waveguide (SIW) power divider and a SIW-slotline transition is proposed in this letter. Due to the metal ground between the two input/output ports, the E-plane SIW power divider has a 180?? reverse phase characteristic. A SIW-slotline transition is utilized to realize the H-plane input/output port of the magic-T. Good agreement between the measured and simulated results indicate that the planar magic-T has a fractional bandwidth (FBW) of 18% (13.2-15.8 GHz), and the amplitude and phase imbalances are less than 0.24 dB and 1.5??, respectively.
