A FAst DIrectional Switch(FADIS) performance based on steep slope in a diplexer function was considered for dual-frequency (dual-f) applications to switch the transmission line with small frequency control. A diplexer of FADIS using a Square Corrugated Waveguide (SCW) splitter was designed as one of the most attractive candidates for the dual-f operation. The splitter performance was a key issue for the dual-f operation, and extended operation regions in splitter operations have been considered and surveyed using mode contents analysis based on matching coefficient evaluation. Some operational branches with high matching coefficients (>0.9) were found, and a new operating parameters were proposed for the dual-f operation in the JT-60SA Electron Cyclotron Hearing and Current Drive (ECHCD) system. Radiation pattern distributions from the SCW splitter were defined very well with no serious side lobes in the dual-f operation. In double loop ring resonator system, the diplexer frequency response was sufficiently steep to switch the outputs of the JT-60SA dual-f gyrotron.
