Power Splitters & Dividers
Frequently Asked Questions about Power Splitters
& Dividers. . .
What Types of power splitters and dividers does
Weinschel offer?
Power splitters are only used in a ratio systems or
leveling loop.
Weinschel offers a variety of broadband (dc-40 GHz) resistive power splitters and dividers with Type N, SMA, 3.5mm,
2.92mm connector options. Power Dividers are available in
2 and 4 way configurations.
o Power splitters can never be used to
combined power. They are unidirectional.
o A basic power splitter has two resistors and three ports. Power
dividers should not be used in
ratio and leveling loop application
because a mismatch condition of nominally 3:1 would exist.
o Power dividers can be used as power combiners
because they are bi-directional. Power dividers can be
used in a system to simultaneously measure two
different characteristics of one signal such as frequency
and attenuation, power splitters can not.
o A basic power divider has three resistors and three
ports. A simple description of the circuit shows that any
one of the three ports has 50 ohm input impedance
when the others are terminated in 50 ohms. The insertion loss between any two ports is 6 dB.
What is a Resistive Power Divider?
How does a resistive power splitter work?
Our resistive power splitters are intended for applications in
which one of the two outputs are included in a leveling loop
or used as a reference in a ratio measurement system, for
the purpose of providing an output signal whose source
impedance is essentially matched to 50 ohms. A basic
design consists of three ports with a resistor on each of the
two output ports, and is a unidirectional device.
What are some applications for a resistive power
splitter?
Resistive power splitters provide exceptional amplitude
tracking and a very low equivalent output SWR over very
broad frequency ranges. They are used in applications in
which one of the two outputs is included in a leveling loop or
as a reference in a ratio systems such as:
o A dual channel insertion loss measuring system where
the resistive power splitter provides reference and a
signal channel.
o A precision power source where a power meter of
known characteristics is used, either by ratio or leveling to provide a calibrated output.
o Provide a sampled output used for leveling a signal
source - for instance in single channel attenuation
measurements.
What applications use resistive power dividers?
o Broadband independent signal sampling - used in
systems to simultaneously measure two different characteristics of one signal such as frequency and power.
o Distribution of a low power signals to two or more
antennas.
o Laboratory measurements where a reference signal
exactly tracking the reference signal is required.
o Resistive power dividers can be used as power
combiners because they are bidirectional.
An equivalent circuit of the resistive divider is shown below.
A simple analysis of this circuit will demonstrate that any
one of the three ports has a 50 ohm input impedance when
the other two are terminated in 50 ohms, and that the insertion loss between any two ports is 6 dB. A microwave
network of this type consists of a symmetrical resistive film
deposited on a ceramic substrate having three conducting
contacts, each connected to the center conductor of a coaxial connector. Resistive dividers provide well-matched
signals of essentially equal magnitude and phase over a
very broad band as opposed to the reactive and hybrid
types which employ frequency limitive techniques. The
resistive divider is intended for applications where the output signals are used independently, such as the
simultaneous monitoring of power and frequency.
When do I use a power splitter or divider?
In simple terms many are confused as to the difference
between power splitters and power dividers. Here is some
basic information that we hope will help.
How do I determine the Insertion Loss for a Power
Divider or Power Splitter?
For Resistive power divider: Isolation = Insertion Loss
For Resistive power splitter: Isolation = Twice the Insertion
Loss
