```Impedance Matching (2)
Outline
• Three Element Matching
– Motivation
– Pi Network
– T Network
• Low Q or Wideband Matching Network
• Impedance Matching on Smith Chart
– Two-Element
– Three-Element Matching
• Multi-Element Matching
• Genesis
RV=4.424 Ohms
Component Q=4.73
Circuit Q
Q of Vin/VS=102.2/(125.4-83.1)=2.416
Circuit Q is different from component Q! Q of Vout/VS=98/(117.6-73.4)=2.21

Insertion of a series inductor to an impedance moves the impedance upward,
causing a rotation clockwise along a constant circle of resistance
Insertion of a series capacitor to an impedance move impedance
downward, causes a rotation counter clockwise along a constant circle of
resistance
Insertion of a shunt capacitor causes a rotation clockwise along a
Insertion of a shunt inductor causes a rotation counter clockwise along a
Example
Design a matching network with a source impedance of
25+15j Ohm and output impedance of 100+25j Ohms.
(We need to have match the source and load to their
complex conjugates)

Constant Q
Q of series impedance=ratio of
reactance to resistance
Constant Q Circle
