Abstract
A systematic design procedure for a slotline-type frequency divider has been developed. The principle of operation of these devices is based on the design of a subharmonic resonator which is isolated from the input "pump" circuit. The resonator and the input circuit interact only via the nonlinear reactances of two varactor diodes. A Computed-Aided Design (CAD) technique is used in this report in order to develop a suitable output circuit. The same program (named COMPACT) is used for analysis and optimization of the final divider circuit. The effectiveness of the design procedure is tested by fabricating two frequency divider circuits designed in the 3.5-8.0 GHz band. A "two-signal" method for measuring "pumped" input and output impedances is then employed.
