Mixed-Mode Converter (Closed Form): MMCONV

Symbol

Summary

MMCONV (mixed-mode converter) separates the signals at ports 3 and 4 into a common (also referred to as sum or even) mode at port 2 and a differential (also referred to as delta or odd) mode at port 1.

Parameters

Name Description Unit Type Default
ID Element ID Text MM#

Implementation Details

In terms of voltages and currents at the ports, this model can be represented as follows:

or

If ports 3 and 4 are both terminated in an impedance, Z, then port 1 must be terminated in 2Z and port 2 in Z/2 in order to be matched.

Layout

This element does not have an assigned layout cell. You can assign artwork cells to any element. See “Assigning Artwork Cells to Layout of Schematic Elements” for details.

Recommendations for Use

This model is commonly used for differential circuit analysis, but can also be used as an ideal power combiner/splitter (with an impedance transform) or magic-tee (with an impedance transform).
