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
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: A simple question regarding blocking capacitors
Unread postPosted: Mon Jul 05, 2004 1:07 pm
simulation, how much value should be assigned to the blocking capacitors
on the input and output ports? Say, if I let the capacitor on the input
be 1pF, then I can get one result, but if I change it to 1nF, the result
will be another story. How to decide the proper values to use? Thanks

What frequency are You using. In simulation
You can put as high capacitance as You wich. Just to achieve blocking
effect. In real life You have to take into account other thing like
resonaces, losses, parsitics and many more.

way to think about blocking capacitors is as single pole high pass filters.
You want your response to be well into the passband if at all possible.

want to add that should be careful in using large capacitance values
for blocking cap, as higher capacitance values, has lower resonance
frequency, so that it might be inductance instead at frequency higher
than f resonance :wink:
