tparameters

Create T-parameter object

Syntax

tobj = tparameters(filename)
tobj = tparameters(tobj_old,z0)
tobj = tparameters(rftbx_obj)
tobj = tparameters(hnet, z0)
tobj = tparameters(paramdata,freq,z0)

Description

example

tobj = tparameters(filename) creates a T-parameter object, ht by importing data from the Touchstone file specified by filename. All data is stored in real/imag format.

example

tobj = tparameters(tobj_old,z0) converts a T-parameter data in tobj_old to the new impedance z0. z0 is optional, and if not provided, tparam_data is copied instead of converted.

tobj = tparameters(rftbx_obj) extracts S-parameter network data from rfdata.network object, an rfdata.data object, or any analyzed network object, and then converts the data to T-parameter data.

tobj = tparameters(hnet, z0) converts the network parameter data in hnet into T-parameter data.

tobj = tparameters(paramdata,freq,z0) creates T-parameter object directly from the specified data, paramdata using specified frequency and impedance.

Examples

Read S-parameter data from a Touchstone file and convert the data to T-parameters

T1 = tparameters('passive.s2p');
disp(T1)
  tparameters: T-parameters object

       NumPorts: 2
    Frequencies: [202x1 double]
     Parameters: [2x2x202 double]
      Impedance: 50

  rfparam(obj,i,j) returns T-parameter Tij

Change the impedance of T-parameters to 100 ohms.

T1 = tparameters('passive.s2p');
disp(T1)
  tparameters: T-parameters object

       NumPorts: 2
    Frequencies: [202x1 double]
     Parameters: [2x2x202 double]
      Impedance: 50

  rfparam(obj,i,j) returns T-parameter Tij
T2 = tparameters(T1,100); 
disp(T2)
  tparameters: T-parameters object

       NumPorts: 2
    Frequencies: [202x1 double]
     Parameters: [2x2x202 double]
      Impedance: 100

  rfparam(obj,i,j) returns T-parameter Tij

Input Arguments

collapse all

T-parameter object, specified as a scalar handle.

Input T-parameter data, specified as 2-by-2-by-K array of complex numbers. The function uses this input argument to set the value of the Parameters property of ht.

Touchstone data file, specified as a character vector. filename can be the name of a file on the MATLAB® path or the full path to a file.

Example: ht = tparameters('defaultbandpass.s2p');

T-parameter frequencies, specified as a vector of positive real numbers. The frequencies are sorted from smallest to largest. The function uses this input argument to set the value of the Frequencies property of ht.

T-parameter impedance, specified as a scalar. z0 is optional and is stored in the Impedance.

Network parameter data, specified as a scalar handle. If hnet is a T-parameter object, then tobj is a deep copy of hnet. Otherwise, the function performs a network parameter conversion to create tobj. Specify hnet as one of the following types: sparameters, yparameters, gparameters, hparameters, zparameters, or abcdparameters.

Network object, specified as a scalar handle. You can specify rftbxobj as one of the following types: rfdata.data object, rfdata.network object, or as any analyzed rfckt type.

Output Arguments

collapse all

T-parameter data, returned as a scalar handle. disp(ht) returns the properties of the object:

  • NumPorts — Number of ports, specified as an integer. The function calculates this value automatically when you create the object.

  • Parameters — T-parameter data, specified as a 2-by-2-by-K array of complex numbers. The 2x2 T-parameter data is specified for each frequency in the “Frequencies” property. The function sets this property from the filename or paramdata input arguments.

  • Impedance — Characteristic impedance used to measure the T-Parameters, specified as a numeric positive real scalar.

  • Frequencies — T-parameter frequencies, specified as a K-by-1 vector of positive real numbers sorted from smallest to largest. The function sets this property from the filename or freq input arguments.
