Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is to present a novel technique for the design of millimetre substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) power dividers based on the Quick Finite Element Method. The return losses, transmission coefficients and the field’s distribution are presented and analyzed by this technique. To present the validity and the performances of our structures, the obtained results are compared with CST commercial software in the band frequencies from 40 to 75 GHz. The numerical simulation program can provides useful design information as well as physical insights for frequencies in the millimeter wave range.
