Expanding Bandwidth With Ferrite Loaded Transmission-Line Devices
By Dr. Karén Kocharyan, senior RF/MW engineer, TRM Microwave
There are fundamental conceptual differences in designing devices intended for use at RF and at microwave bands. The “lumped-element” approach is a prevalent design ideology at RF, while “distributed elements” and “transmission lines” dominate design approach at microwave frequencies. This white paper describes the synthetic approach — a more practical approach that combines both concepts into a single device.
