Abstract : This patent relates to the field of wave transmission lines. More particularly, it relates to branched stripline circuits with impedance matching. In a stripline power divider having a pair of conductive stripes, which are on opposite sides of a dielectric board, overlap at an input port, and then diverge oppositely to a pair of output ports individual to the stripes, the improvement characterized by the divider having an opening extending through the board and between the strips in the region where they diverge, by conductive plating extending from each stripe along the adjacent edge of the opening, and by a plug of elastomeric, lossy material fitted in the opening to electrically connect the plated edges and suppress odd mode fields between the stripes.
