Main Article Content
This article presents a review of technologies to enhance or compensate for directivity of the microstrip parallel coupled lines. By describing the basic features of the microstrip parallel coupled lines. There are 2 main techniques, which are the distributed compensation and the lumped compensation. In addition, this paper also presents the advantages and disadvantages of each compensation coupled line technique.
