Abstract

A RF amplitude equalizer is designed to improve in-band flatness of Rf filters and/or systems using two dielectric resonators and a 90$^{\circ}$ hybrid. The equalizer has good return loss characteristics and V shaped S$_{21}$ response in passband which is suitable to compensate the ripple degradation due to insufficient quality factors of used resonators or narrow band width of filters or systems. After being connected to the equalizer, a 5-pole BPF at 1957MHz, which has 10 MHz bandwidth and 6㏈ ripple, shows only 1.8㏈ in-band ripple and good in- and out- band matched responses within used hybrid bandwidth without additional matching networks.
