EERF6311 RF & Microwave Circuits

Assignment 3

Exercise 1:
Assume that a microstrip line has h=0.7874 mm and that RF/Duroid (  r  2.23 ) . Gold is
utilized as a conductor. The thickness of the conductior is t=50 µm. Determine the with of the
transmission line utilizing TX LINE from AWR.

Exercise 3: 2.20 Problem 2.20 (part a) - Gonzalez
Design a single-stub matching network (see Figure 3) to match the load ZL=15+j25Ω to a
50-Ω. The characteristic of the short circuited stabu is 50-Ω. Use Y-Smith Chart
