Both resistive type and reactive type power divider/combiners can be used to fan-in or fan-out RF signals. However, both types distribute RF signals in a different fashion. This white paper offers guidelines and considerations for determining a divider/combiner for each application. Download the full paper for more on their differences in construction, through path loss, sizes, and DC passing models.
