Accurate and Efficient Modeling of Meander-line Polarizers

The use of PMM version 4.0 software to model the parallel and perpendicular polarization susceptance of a polarizer
Accurate and Efficient Modeling of Meander-line Polarizers A meander-line polarizer is a passive broadband device used to convert the polarization properties of a wave. When designed properly, the polarizer permits a linear polarized antenna to propagate circular polarization without any significant variations in the pattern performance. Modeling of the...

A Microwave Analog Frequency Divider

A narrowband two-stage analog divide-by-four frequency divider that converts a 10 GHz input to 2.5 GHz
A Microwave Analog Frequency Divider Matjaz Vidmar Nova Gorica, Slovenia Many analog frequency divider circuits were invented during the age of the vacuum tube. Some of these circuits even survived the germanium transistor age, but most were forgotten following the availability of inexpensive monolithic digital ICs such as flip-flops...
