In this letter, a novel 4-way X-band spatial power divider/combiner has been developed using a modified quasi-Yagi antenna transition. The divider has an insertion loss of less than 0.5 dB and a power balance of +/-0.8 dB over a bandwidth of 3.5 GHz in the X-band. A power combiner amplifier using this circuit and four MMIC amplifiers has been demonstrated with 84% combining efficiency. The obtained results show that the modified quasi-Yagi antenna is a suitable element to develop a broadband spatial power combiner.
