Network Parameters in RF Circuit Design

1.1  INTRODUCTION

Network parameters allow engineers to determine the overall circuit performance without knowing the internal structure. They carry great importance in the analysis and design of devices and components. Network parameters provide mathematical tools for designers to model and characterize devices by establishing relations between voltages and currents [1,2,3,4,5]. It is possible to theoretically calculate loss, power delivered, reflection coefficient, voltage and current gains, and several other critical parameters with the use of network analysis techniques. Hence, it is necessary to understand and utilize network parameters in radio frequency (RF)/microwave device and component ...
