Transmission Line With Input and Load Impedances
out my public seminar offering in Boulder City, NV. This is one of the
best seminar values around because the industry typical fee includes
more than just the seminar and lunch, but airport
transportation in NV, lodging in the historic Boulder City Dam Hotel and
Museum, and breakfast and lunch each day. Click here for more details.
Abstract: A new equivalent circuit for Zin of
an arbitrarily terminated transmission
line is presented, one which
employs only lumped impedances and
short and open line stubs in
series‐parallel combination. The new picture
readily illustrates concepts of line
matching and impedance inversion at quarter‐wave frequencies, and also offers insights into transient and off‐resonance response.
Tim Maloney of
Intel Corporation has devised a simple, intuitive, and useful
equivalent circuit for a transmission line using shorted and open
transmission line segments and submitted it for publication on this
site. In essence, his equivalent circuit transforms the transmission
line of Figure 1 above into the configuration of Figure 2 below. This
is a very useful equivalent circuit.

Don't be scared by the look of the equations you see on the page. Tim
does an excellent job of simplifying their interpretation into an easy
to understand concept.

Maloney's paper on an equivalent circuit for transmission lines is an
intuitive and very useful treatment of transmission lines. Many
engineers will find this equivalent circuit useful in their work.

I am writing this from my new office in Boulder City, NV!!! I am doing morning 5 to 10 minute podcasts on
technical topics most mornings I am in the office. These podcasts will
appear on the home page of http://CircuitAdvisor.com
by late morning except for days when I am not in the office. The first
one has been posted under the headings of Free Audio, General Interest.
Is your product failing ESD testing?
Attend my webinar on sources of error in ESD testing. This webinar
covers problems and mistakes often made in testing products for ESD
compliance that can cause a good product to fail when it should pass.
The webinar is given as both a scheduled event and on-demand. Contact
me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more details. Don't let your product fail ESD testing
unnecessarily. This webinar is an easy, cost effective solution.
