Description

example

coupling(coupler,frequency) calculates and plots the coupling factor of a coupler over the specified frequency values.

example

c = coupling(coupler,frequency) returns the coupling factor of a coupler over the specified frequency.

Create a branchline coupler with default values.

coupler = couplerBranchline
coupler = 
  couplerBranchline with properties:

      PortLineLength: 0.0186
       PortLineWidth: 0.0051
     SeriesArmLength: 0.0184
      SeriesArmWidth: 0.0083
      ShuntArmLength: 0.0186
       ShuntArmWidth: 0.0051
              Height: 0.0016
    GroundPlaneWidth: 0.0600
           Substrate: [1x1 dielectric]
           Conductor: [1x1 metal]

Calculate the coupling factor of the coupler at 2 GHz.

coupling(coupler,2e6)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object with title Coupling Factor contains an object of type line.

Create a rat-race coupler with default values.

coupler = couplerRatrace;

Calculate the coupling factor of the coupler at 3 GHz.

c = coupling(coupler,3e6)
c = -6.0206

Input Arguments
