A multilayer ceramic balun designed in the 2.4 GHz ISM band frequency is presented. A multilayer structure to realise the low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) balun is proposed. This type of balun comprises an embedded capacitor and meandered or spiral coupled lines. The use of an LC resonator can shrink the length of a coupled transmission line and can be designed very easily to have various balanced output port impedances. Excellent performance of phase and amplitude balance may be achieved by the proposed method. Measured results of the LTCC-multilayer ceramic (MLC) balun match well with the computer simulation.
