The article discusses the use of ferrite materials in Radio Frequency (RF) or microwave power dividers. It is noted that use of ferrite transformers and magnetic coupling manifest better electrical performance due to reduced ohmic losses. It is noted that ferrites with stronger anisotropy provide broader bandwidth with lesser permeability.

    The microwave properties of Z type Ba hexagonal ferrites with uniaxial anisotropy can be controlled over a wide range by choice of an appropriate mixture of Zn, Ni, and Co as divalent species. Using unmagnetized powders of these ferrites, the microwave permeability spectra were taken in a swept...
