Crossovers are very interesting passive devices in monolithic Integrated Circuits (IC) and antenna arrays. These devices maintain signal purity when transmission lines intersect. There are several types of crossovers. Printed planar crossovers are the most used thanks to their compact and simple structure.

Radio frequency (RF) and microwave systems typically require a perfect power distribution networks performed through two types of microwave structures: Dividers to split an input signal into two or more output signals and Combiners to associate RF input signals from multiple inputs into single RF output signal.
