Abstract—In this paper, a new approach to the design of a balun circuit is presented. The proposed balun is composed of an impedance-transforming directional coupler and an LH/RH transmission line differential phase shifter. The proposed solution features broadband amplitude and phase response, moreover, a flexibility of the impedance transformation from balanced to imbalanced port is obtained. The proposed concept has been verified by the design of a balun circuit featuring over-an-octave bandwidth and impedance transformation 70 bal. / 50 imbal.

Index Terms—Microwave baluns, directional couplers, coupled-line couplers.
