Hi everybody!

I am designing the Synthesizer of RF receiver. Now I found a little trouble when I am trying to obtain 2 samples of the same RF signal. I was thinking into use a 4-Wyde resistor divider but the isolation I obtain between signals is very poor.I am using RF signals between 1500MHz to 2000MHz with levels from 0dBm to -10dBm.

Any good idea to split the same RF signal to 3 different ways with good isolation between each other?

If you are open to using discrete divider ICs then you have many option available from Mini-Circuits and Hittite.
I faced a similar situation (however for 6-7 GHz). I used a resistor power divider from SuSuMu Co limited. Their parts are available on digikey. However they give an attenuation of 6 dB and you should have enough amplification to compensate this loss

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
