The basic theory of coupler is introduced, and a tunable strip-line wideband coupler is designed by using radio-frequency/microwave software which is named ADS on the basis of theoretical calculations and analysis. The broadband coupler can be adjusted appropriately in different frequency regions by using a tunable band line. It has a wide bandwidth of 2G~4G, excellent return loss of (>30.5) dB, stable coupling coefficient of (9.85~10.81) dB, and high isolation of (>20.08) dB, the
