Use of Network Parameters
Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne
Microwave network parameters have been great tools to investigate the characteristics of microwave devices. Microwave devices can be treated as a black box and network parameters can be used to establish voltage and current relationships between output and input of the network. This enables engineers to characterize the devices without having prior knowledge about the device’s operational characteristics. There are several network parameters that can be used for this purpose. Z, Y, ABCD, Hybrid, Scattering, and Chain Scattering parameters are commonly used network parameters to characterize microwave devices and networks.
