Abstract

Power dividers are important components of microwave/millimeter wave (mm-wave) circuit design. This article provides a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art substrate-integrated-waveguide (SIW) power dividers/combiners. SIW technology converts waveguide-like structures into planar form, compensates for the drawbacks of microstrip structures at higher-frequency circuit designs, and minimizes production complexity and costs compared to conventional waveguide structures. An overview of how traditional dividers have progressive adopted the SIW technique is presented and a comparative performance analysis of the divider types and practical paradigm show the future potential of SIW technology.
