The spot frequency design of optimum embedding networks for RF switching, modulation, and phase shifting using power limited switches
Abstract
A procedure is established for the spot frequency design of 2 port and 3 port switch embeddings that are optimum with respect to a given RF switching function. The results are applicable to any RF switching device that can be classified as a passive one port whose input impedance can assume either one of two steady state values, on command. The YoulaCsurgay power constraints for a twostate oneport switch were utilized as the basis for characterizing the power limitations of the device. These constraints were extended to one port switches constructed from a given configuration on n arbitrary switches. An analytical basis was established for defining an (n+1)port embedding (for n arbitrary switches) that is optimum with respect to its equivalent figure of merit and which maximizes the total power handling capabilities of the composite structure.
