    ABSTRACT: A lattice network with branches made up of open- and short-circuited transmission-line sections is proposed as an equivalent circuit for a wide range of so-called coupled-line filter sections. The proposed lattice equivalent circuits have proven to be an advantageous alternative to the equivalent circuits found in the technical literature (when available) as they are exact, useful in wide frequency bands, and take into account the different phase velocities of even and odd modes.

    ABSTRACT: In this letter, new two-way and four-way power dividers are proposed using quarter-wave long multi-conductor coupled lines. The design equations for a two-way power divider are derived by analyzing a three-conductor coupled line. Then, the structure is extended to propose a planar four-way power divider with compact size. The fabricated two-way and four-way power dividers at 2.0 GHz show an excellent performance in the insertion loss, impedance matching at all ports and isolation between output ports.

    ABSTRACT: This paper focuses on the derivation of an enhanced transmission-line model allowing the stochastic analysis of a realistic multiconductor interconnect. The proposed model, which is based on the expansion of the well-known telegraph equations in terms of orthogonal polynomials, includes the variability of geometrical or material properties of the interconnect due to uncertainties like fabrication process or temperature. A real application example involving the frequency-domain analysis of a coupled microstrip and the computation of the parameters variability effects on the transmission-line response concludes this paper.
