This paper describes a miniaturized in-phase power divider with a DC block function. We first propose three types of miniaturized in-phase power dividers composed of two distributed transmission lines, a resistor, and three capacitors to function as a DC block. Then, we use a simulation to compare the dividers. The simulation results show that, by properly selecting circuit configuration, we both achieve broadband frequency characteristics and miniaturize circuitry as compared to the conventional Wilkinson power divider with two DC block capacitors. Finally, an experimental UHF power divider fabricated to test the design concept is presented. Over the frequency range from 0.44 to 0.66 GHz, the experimental power divider exhibits power splits of -3.20.2 dB, return losses greater than 20 dB, and isolation between output ports greater than 20 dB.
