A textile resistor implemented using conductive polymer fabric is presented. The resistor performance is verified with an equal-split textile Wilkinson power divider at L-band. Measured results show equivalent performance with a conventional chip resistor. The measured bandwidth is 565 MHz with 20 dB minimum isolation between divider output ports. Results show that it is possible to design and manufacture entirely textile feed and matching networks.
