CLIN simulates a pair of symmetric coupled lossless transmission line that supports pure TEM mode of propagation. Model implies that line length is specified as electrical length (phase lag of mode propagating along the line) at user specified frequency. User must supply values of odd and even characteristic impedances.

Name | Description | Unit Type | Default |
---|---|---|---|

ID | Name | Text | TL1 |

ZE | Even mode characteristic impedance | Resistance | 50 ohm |

ZO | Odd mode characteristic impedance | Resistance | 100 ohm |

EL | Electrical length (phase length) at F0 | Angle | 90 Deg |

F0 | Frequency reference for electrical length | Frequency | 10 GHz |

**EL** and **F0.** These
parameters determine the frequency dependence of the electrical length of the line,
described as βL=EL· freq/Fo · π/180 where
`freq`

is the evaluation frequency. EL specifies phase lag of
propagating TEM mode, that is it accounts for effective dielectric constant of line.
Note that even and odd phase velocities are implied equal in this model.

**ZE** and **ZO**. Even and
odd characteristic impedances are used to obtain entries of line Y-matrix.
