The three fundamental modes of a cavity resonator, namely, TE011, TE101, and TM110 modes, are adopted to resonate at each of three channels, respectively. Due to the modal orthogonality of these fundamental modes, high isolation among three channels can be achieved. Two kinds of crossovers, for narrowband and broadband applications, are presented. For the narrowband case, the proposed crossover resonates at 2.91 GHz with the fractional bandwidth of 1.4%. For the broadband case, the proposed crossover resonates at 3 GHz with the fractional bandwidth of 24%. The isolations of both designs reach more than 50 dB. For a proof of concept, the broadband example of the cavity crossover structures is fabricated and measured. A good agreement between the simulated and the measured results verifies the accuracy of the proposed design methodology.
