Abstract : A multiplexer includes a first channel segment having first components derived from a first logarithmic periodic multiplexer circuit. The first channel Segment receives a composite signal from a composite signal port, selects a first channel having a first bandwidth and first center frequency from the composite signal, and directs a first channelized signal to the first channelized signal port responsive to the first channel. In addition, the multiplexer incenses a second channel segment, connected to the first channel segment and having second components derived from a second logarithmic periodic multiplexer circuit. The second channel segment receives the portions of the composite signal from the composite signal port via the first segment, selects a second channel having a second bandwidth and second center frequency from the composite signal, and directs a second channelized-signal to a second channelized signal port responsive to the second channel.
