What's a corporate power divider?
Most "simple" power dividers perform a two-way split.
What if you need to feed more components? For example, if you are
designing a six-channel receiver, and you have to provide six LO
By cascading two-way power dividers,
you can get 2, 4, 8, 16 etc. outputs. Every stage drops the signal
by -3.02 dB ideally. So the loss of a 4-way corporate divider has
an ideal loss of -6.04 dB, an eight way has -9.06 dB, etc. In practice,
you will experience additional loss.
More coming soon!
