In this paper, a planar 180 phase-reversal T-junction and a modified magic-T using substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) and slotline are proposed and developed for RF/microwave applications on the basis of the substrate integrated circuits concept. In this case, slotline is used to generate the odd-symmetric field pattern of the SIW in the phase-reverse T-junction. Measured results indicate that 0.3-dB amplitude imbalance and 3 phase imbalance can be achieved for the proposed 180 phase-reversal T-junction over the entire -band. The modified narrowband and optimized wideband magic-T are developed and fabricated, respectively. Measured results of all those circuits agree well with their simulated ones. Finally, as an application demonstration of our proposed magic-T, a singly balanced mixer based on this structure is designed and measured with good performances.
