MLP - 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.

Greetings Gogober:

this circuit is called L-Pad attenuator, and is used to match between 2 impedance levels. The ratio doesn't have to be necessarily RL>RS, it can be also RS>RL, all depends on the application. This attenuator is basically derived from the T attenuator (with one of the series resistors is reduced to value of 0-ohm). This attenuator is designed to have minimum attenuation value.

You can calculate the resistor values of R1, R2 according to the following formulas:

R1=SQRT( RS(RS-RL))

T2=SQRT ((RS*RL^2)/(RS-RL))

Good luck,
Itay
