A general theory of broadband matching
Abstract
In the design of communications systems, a basic problem is to transfer power efficiently from a given source system to a given load system over a desired band of frequencies. The problem was studied of designing an optimum, linear, timeinvariant, lumped, passive, reciprocal, lossless equalizer to match an arbitrary passive or active but nonFoster, lumped load impedance to an arbitrary source system with lumped, passive nonFoster Thevenin equivalent impedance. The theory presented is a generalization of BodeFanoYoula broadband matching theory to include dissipative, frequency sensitive source impedance. The approach taken circumvents the need for replacing the load and source impedances by their Darlington equivalents and is applicable to passive as well as active loads.
