Two wideband filtering out-of-phase power dividers are designed and analyzed. The initial design is composed of a quarter-wavelength slotline resonator and two microstrip-toslotline transitions. Three transmission poles are produced to form the passband. Excellent matching and isolation are achieved using extra matching network. Based on the initial design, a pair of stepped-impedance open stubs are shunted at the output ports to improve the passband selectivity. The designs have been verified
