Goal 

Understanding of signal properties on transmission lines in the time and frequency domain. Basic knowledge of analog filter synthesis.

Contents

  • Transmission line equations of the lossless and lossy TEM-transmission line. Introduction of current and voltage waves.
  • Representation of reflections in the time and frequency domain.
  • Application of the Smith chart. Behavior of low-loss transmission lines. Attenuation and impulse distortion due to skin effect.
  • Transmission line equivalent circuits.
  • Group delay and signal dispersion.
  • Coupled transmission lines. Butterworth-, Chebychev- and Bessel filter approximations: filter synthesis from low-pass filter prototypes.
  • Simple active filters.
