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.

hi...if i have a parallel RC load (i.e. a BJT input impedance)
where R is almost 50 Ohms is it possible to use just a series inductor
to match to a 50 Ohm source? i can see how just using a shunt inductor
this can be accomplised but i'm not sure if using a series inductor
will do the match. if it can be done, can someone briefly explain how?

yes, you can do it. but it seems like you're mixing
up the definitions; if you know or found out that your IMPEDANCE is
something like 50-jXc, then that means that is 50 in series with Xc
and so when you do your analysis by hand or CAD you need to have a series
RC model and not parallel RC model.... of course, if you need to think
in parallel you can always convert to admittance. on the other hand,
if your admittance was 50-jXc then you're on the right track but this
value would be odd for a transistor because that means that your transistor
size is giving, in simple form, an rpi value of 1/50, which as far as
I can know can't be possible.
