Transmission Lines and Waveguides with Ansys Electronics Desktop
This lecture unit provides an introduction to the theory of transmission lines. Characteristic impedance is defined and used to derive equations for signal reflection and transmission at an impedance discontinuity. Analysis also covers matching networks, input impedance and S-parameters. Exercises and Quiz are included to help with critical thinking and motivation for self-exploration on circuit analysis.
This lecture unit is based on a course developed by Kathryn Leigh Smith, Asst. Prof. in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte in partnership with Ansys.
