Abstract:

Passive matching of an arbitrary load to a purely resistive source is limited both as to obtainable gain-bandwidth product and as to the practicality of the passive network required. A matching technique is presented which uses one active element, a negative impedance converter, in a lossless coupling network. The ideal match achieved is not frequency limited, and the matching network consists of only a small number of elements. The only limitation on the method is that the load immittance must be either minimum susceptive or minimum reactive.
