Three miniaturized lumped-element power dividers with a filtering function for use in quadrature mixers are described. Simulation results showed that they can be miniaturized, as compared to conventional ones with open/short stubs, while maintaining the filter characteristics. A fabricated 0.95-GHz 0power divider with a filtering function had a chip size about half that of a conventional lumped-element one. Its insertion loss at 0.950.05 GHz was 4.00.1 dB.
