A design of 3 dB compact ultra wideband (UWB) coupler for a 4 x 4 Butler Matrix, which is operating between 3 and 11 GHz frequency range, is presented in this paper. The proposed design uses multilayer technology that allows having a compact and broad bandwidth coupler. The design uses elliptically shaped broadside coupled strips and a slot created in a common ground plane of two dielectric substrates with the same shape. The design then being fabricated on 0.8 mm thick FR4 substrates and it occupies the dimension of 30 mm x 15 mm. The simulation and experimental results show a good performance in terms of bandwidth, which covers the entire UWB operation. In addition, detailed analysis of air gap effect for S-parameters and phase difference of the designed coupler is presented in this study.
