The input signal is split with a Wilkinson divider and a 50 [ohm] quarter-wave line
is inserted in the input stage of the peaking amplifier to match the delay between the two paths.
The fabricated hybrid demonstrates good design accuracy resulting in a circuit with a miniature size of [lambda]/24 instead of quarter-wave lines.
Power dividers using quarter-wave lines become prohibitively large at the lower frequencies and result in MMIG chips of larger size and higher cost.
This section may be made wider band by adding stages or additional resistors with quarter-wave lines separating each one.
0175[inches]) and the shorter than quarter-wave lines ([Lambda]/4: 0.
