Abstract

Three types of three-line baluns are studied in this paper. The equivalent circuits of these baluns are derived using the model of coupled transmission lines. The balun designs with Chebyshev response can then be exactly synthesized. A complete design procedure of the baluns with second-, third-, and fourth-order insertion loss functions is presented. Balun designs with wide bandwidths of more than 2 to 1 are achievable by this method. Some guidelines for practical realization are also suggested. A third-order balun design with a fractional bandwidth of 80% is given to demonstrate the proposed procedure.
