Resistive Pi-Pad (Closed Form): PIPAD



Name Description Unit Type Default
ID Element ID Text P1
Z1 Input impedance Resistance 50 ohm
Z2 Output impedance Resistance 50 ohm
DB Attenuation in DB DB 0 dB

Implementation Details

Implements an ideal attenuator. Z1 and Z2 specify the input and output resistances. If port 2 is terminated in Z2 then port 1 will be matched to Z1. Likewise if port 1 is terminated in Z1 then port 2 will be matched to Z2. Both resistances must be greater than zero.

DB specifies the attenuation in dB. The absolute value of DB is always used, and must be greater than DBmin defined below.
