EE3113_L14 2 Scattering parameters • There is a need to establish well-defined termination conditions in order to find the network descriptions for Z , Y , h , and ABCD networks • Open and short voltage and current conditions are difficult to enforce • RF implies forward and backward traveling waves which can form standing waves destroying the elements

EE3113_L14 3 Solution: S-parameters • Input-output behavior of network is defined in terms of normalized power waves • Ratio of the power waves are recorded in terms of so-called
