Here is a wonderful tutorial video on how to perform RF Impedance matching by optimally selecting SMT devices (or in other words what we call as discrete components based matching network design). Performing matching network design is not that difficult once you know the fundamentals, however to design good impedance matching network by selecting the realistic/standard components values which are available in market or available in individual’s inventory is always the most challenging job during the design process.
This video outlines a very neat way of performing discrete component based matching network design we can restrict software to use values which are available in our inventory or readily available in the market. Thanks to Hee Soo Lee (Keysight Technologies) to create such a wonderful & insightful video to solve one of the big pain of RF designers..
