PROBLEM SET 3 ECE 311 Autumn Quarter 2011 Assigned: Friday, Oct. 7th Due: Friday, Oct. 14th in class Instructor: Joel T. Johnson Problem 1 A circuit board inside of a GPS receiver is being designed to operate at 1.6 GHz. The circuit layout calls for a 4 pF capacitor as part of a low-pass filter, but a lumped element capacitor is not available at this frequency. Instead the circuit designer decides to use a short circuited transmission line to create the same reactance as the capacitor at 1.6 GHz. Lossless 80 Ohm microstrip lines are used on the 2.5 mm thick circuit board, which is made of a material with , . (a) How long should the shorted line be to create an effective 4 pF capacitor at 1.6 GHz? (b) What effective capacitance does the transmission line create at 1.55 GHz? At 1.65 GHz? (c) If only a 10% deviation from the specified capacitance is tolerable over this band, is your design allowable? Problem 2 An FM radio broadcast station operates at 91 MHz. Power is sent to the broadcast antenna through a lossless, air-filled 50 ohm transmission line. The antenna at the load

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
