Abstract : In Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuits, crossovers maintain signal purity when transmission lines overlap with each other. A simple crossover for dual band applications, particularly suitable for the development of smart antennas, is presented in this paper. Derived from conventional patch antenna, the proposed crossovers are easy to design and fabricate, thus reducing the overall complexity. Design is verified for a dual band crossover at 2.4/5.23 GHz on FR4 (Fiberglass Reinforced) epoxy and tested using Keysight E5080 A Vector Network Analyser. The results obtained by simulation and measurement are in agreement. The proposed crossovers find application in a Butler matrix for phased array and smart antenna systems.
