This study presents a novel miniaturised ultra-wideband (UWB) multilayer balun embedded into organic packaging substrate of liquid crystal polymer. The broadside coupled stripline structure is adopted in this work to realise UWB performance and TEM mode. The fabricated prototype is self-packaged for electromagnetic shielding, and lightweight, with a small footprint. The proposed balun design achieves excellent amplitude and phase balances within the entire bandwidth, centred at 6.2 GHz. Simulation and measurement results show very good agreement.
