3-Way Power Splitter (Closed Form): SPLIT3



Name Description Unit Type Default
ID Element ID Text P1
L21 Insertion loss from port 1 to port 2 DB 4.77 dB
L31 Insertion loss from port 1 to port 3 DB 4.77 dB
L41 Insertion loss from port 1 to port 4 DB 4.77 dB
Z0 Port impedance Resistance 50 ohm
*ChkPassv Switch "Do not Check passivity/Check passivity"   No

* indicates a secondary parameter

Parameter Details

ChkPassv. If set to Yes, tests SPLIT2 for passivity and displays a warning if there is a passivity violation. The default setting is No (Do not check passivity).

Implementation Details

A signal applied to port 1 is split between ports 2, 3, and 4 with insertion losses given by L21, L31, and L41, respectively. The losses are bi-directional and ports 2, 3 and 4 are isolated. You can enter either positive or negative quantities for L21, L31 and L41, but they are interpreted, in all cases, as losses. The following equations implement the behavior of this model:
