Hi there.

I would like to design a MICROSTRIP DIRECTIONAL COUPLER of 20dB for UHF band. I am quite new in this kind of couplers. How to begin the design with ADS and its MOMENTUM tool?Which are the steps?

thanks.

Hello Corvus,

I am also new to this topic. From what I remember, in ADS there are models of coupled lines and also of couplers under the Microstrip line library, which you can utilize as a start point for your design.

First, a linear simulation to estimate the dimensions of the microstrip lines based on the required coupling, reflections and isolation requirements.

The next step is to do EM simulations.

In addition, I have found in Google this article, which shed some light on the design steps:

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 ...
