At low frequencies, the Q of an inductor is very good because the only resistance in the windings is the dc resistance of the wire — which is very small. Transformer coupling does not lend itself well to an exact design procedure because there are so many factors that influence the degree of coupling.

Often a bandpass response is not specified, as in Example Wire is also used in many interconnect chrs in the lower RF spectrum.

This yields the low-pass prototype circuit of Fig. A little manipulation of Equations and will reveal a very interesting point.

He can select component values of L and C that optimize Q. Plot of loaded-0 curves for circuits in Fig. Each curve begins at colco c — 1, which is the normalized cutoff, or 3-dB frequency. Obviously, all possible ratios of source to load resistance could cgris possibly fit on a chart of this size.


These capacitors are sometimes called tempera- ture compensating capacitors, or NPO negative positive zero ceramics. My library Help Advanced Book Desgin. Capacitors at certain frequencies may not be capacitors at all, but may look inductive, while inductors may look like capacitors, and resistors may tend to be a little of both.

Each shunt element in the low-pass prototype circuit is replaced by a shunt series-resonant circuit, and each series-element is replaced by a series parallel-resonant circuit. Shape Factor — The shape factor of a resonant circuit is typically defined as being the ratio of the dB bandwidth to the 3-dB bandwidth of the resonant circuit.

Notice, also, that the attenuation slope eventually settles down to the rate of 6 dB for every octave doubling increase in frequency. If an external load of some sort were attached to the resonant circuit, as shown in Fig.

Single-layer air-core inductor requirements. In the AWG system, the diameter of a wire will roughly double every six wire gauges. Most, if not all, mobile devices have an RF component and this book tells the reader how to design and integrate that component in a very practical fashion.

This includes teflon, polystyrene, polycarbonate, and paper dielectrics. This approach will allow a small air gap between windings and, thus, decrease the interwinding capacitance.

Finally, we will investigate some methods of coupling resonant circuits to increase their selectivity. The low-pass prototype element values for the Bessel filter are given in Table For this example, we obtain the value of n from Fig.

Any further increase in frequency will cause the resistor’s impedance to decrease as shown in Fig. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without the prior written permission of the publisher.


A brief example should illustrate this point Example This is due to the single reactive element in the circuit.

Equivalent circuit of capacitively coupled resonant circuits. In silvered micas, the silver plates are applied by a process called vacuum evaporation which is a much more exacting pro- cess. Remember, we have already taken into account the loading effect that each resonant circuit has on the other through the factor 0.

This is due to the shunt capacitance in the equivalent circuit. In this section, we’ll take a look at the capacitor’s equivalent circuit and we will examine a few of the various types of capacitors used at radio frequencies to see which cheis best suited for certain applications.

Thus, if a material’s dielectric constant is 3, it will produce a capacitor having three times the capacitance of one that has air as its dielectric. Temperature characteristics for ceramic dielectric capacitors.
