  • 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.
