This paper describes a new Wilkinson power divider on a single-layer microstrip line that can reduce the occupied area, suppress the harmonic components, and/or provide the arbitrary power division ratios. It consists of two-section transmission lines, two inductors, and one isolation resistor. Four different designs have been conducted to investigate the capabilities of the structure. In addition, a compact divider along with harmonic suppression and a practical divider with a large power-dividing ratio has been constructed and measured. The simulation and measurement results are in good agreement with each other. This indicates that the structure can effectively be used as a power divider for miniaturized or arbitrary power division ratio applications.
