# A question of LNA - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hello ,I'm a student and know a little ADS .I'm designing the LNA.When I have mathed input and output impedance using the L and C,I can design the PCB .But the appliances should't link directly to each other .there are shuold be the transmission line between them .How should I decide the transmission line width and length .How do I measure The influence of the ransmission line .Should the input and output impedanc be changed??[/url]

Hello czc2166,

When designing a matching circuit you should take into consideration the transmission lines that connect between the matching components. In general, these transmission lines should have an impedance of 50 ohm. You can calculate the width of the line by using LINECalc (A tool of ADS), or just by using a formula (Depednding on the type of transmission line you use - Co-Planar, µstrip etc). Series transmission lines (50 ohm) will add delay (phase angle), you will see it on the smith chart. The impedances will be changed of course, but you can tune the values of the components to compensate for that. Also take into consideration that the components have tolerance. Finally see that the matching circuit provides the required matching all over the required BW.

What is your operating frequency and BW??
