A novel generalized design procedure of broadband planar baluns based on wire-bonded Multi-conductor Transmission Lines (MTLs) is presented hereby based on analytical equations. The proposed balun consists of two parts. The first one is an in-phase power divider, which equally splits the input power through its two outputs. The later are two MTLs with wire bonding between alternate conductors configured to introduce +90 and -90 degrees phase shift respectively, so that the balanced output signal has a 180 degree phase difference.
