I need to design a 1 to 4 power divider from 0.5GHz-6.5GHz. I tried Wilkinson divider using microstrip on RF-60A (Er=6.15, H=1.52). With 4 stages I can meet the specifications. However, the size would be extremely large. Hopefully the length of power divider will not exceed 20 mm :D
Anyone could give me some suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I'm currently looking for a good Architecture for 8-bit divider (the divident is 16-bit and divisor is 8-bit, the quotient is supposed to be 8-bit). The one I previously used was some "restoring division algorithm" and 16 iterations of subtractions are needed to obtain an 8-bit quotient, so it was working really slowly.

at the moment we build a broadband power divider.
The wilkinson type needs a resistor say 100 ohms.
what kind of resistor is it?
Is it easy to get it, maybe as samples from vendors

If you make a hybrid coupler or wilkinson power divider in ADS layout, is it possible to have this imported into Orcad.
Here I mean to have it as an component with ports so I can use it in Orcad Capture?
Hope this make sense.

This is usually done with a resistive voltage divider. For not loading down the node being measured the two resistors should be large values. This produces a problem if the Thevenin output impedance of the divider is large and makes a voltage divider effect with the ADC input impedance.

If your using a resistive divider, only the ratio between resistors matters.
Go to the process specification sheet and get the matching parameter of the resistive material you are planning to use (say Ao). Then you compute the standard deviation of each resistor, if proper layout techniques are used, as
sigma=Ao/SQRT(W.L), where L is the total

I think you should seperate the power supply for PFD divider and other analog part.
Because the analog parts are supply noise sensitive.
PFD and divider will induce the Fpfd or other freqeuncy noise on your power supply, and your output PSD will have the spur.

It doesn't make any sense to use LDO as bias boltage generator,
as you know, LDO need large cap compensation.
I think you mis-understood what the LDO is
Bandgap, with an op-amp and feedback resistor divider will have a gain >1, so
you can get any voltage by resistor divider ratio.

You shouldn't use a very small resistor segment, but I expect your poly is about 2k per square. So make 20 resistors of 20k each. One example would be 40 micron length and 2 micron width if you want fairly accurate resistors. Or shrink it to the minimum width if you just want a divider and don't care about absolute value.
