Abstract

A novel compact filtering rat-race hybrid coupler with improved upper stopband is presented in this letter. Four coupled-resonator pairs are utilized to replace the λ/4- and 3λ/4-transmission lines in the conventional hybrid. Each coupled-resonator pair exhibits a bandpass filtering response and acts as a K-inverter. Eight resistors are placed at the center of the λ/2-resonators to suppress the 2nd-harmonic. For verification, a filtering rat-race hybrid is implemented with a center frequency of 1.27 GHz and 20-dB rejection band of 2.73 f0. Good in-phase and out-of-phase characteristics are obtained. The proposed device has a simple circuit topology, compact size and good performance.
