EE 541 University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering J. Choma. Midterm Examination Solutions 2 Fall Semester, 2010 (b). In terms of resistances R 1 and R 2 and capacitance C , how must inductance L be selected to satisfy the design requirements?

(E1-9) Problem #2: Solution (35%) In the filter of Figure (E2), the inductance, L , is chosen in accordance with the con- straint, 2 o L RC, = + L C R o R o R o V s V o Z in Figure (E2) where R o is the resistance terminating the output port of the filter, as well as representing the Thévenin resistance of the signal source applied to the filter input port. In addition, note that a resistance of value R o shunts inductance L in the filter. (a). Determine the input port scattering parameter, S 11 , referred to a characteristic impedance of R o .
