Using S-Parameters in MATLAB & Simulink Publisher's description
from Dick Benson
Using S-Parameters in MATLAB & Simulink - Example of rf amplifier design using S parameters in both MATLAB and Simulink.
A sequence of examples is provided that demonstrate how S-parameter measurements can be made and utilized to design a radio frequency amplifier.
An HP (now Agilent) 8505A system controlled by MATLAB is used to characterize a bipolar transistor in terms of its S-parameters. These measurements are used to design input and output matching networks for a prescribed 20 dB gain. The resulting design is verified in both MATLAB and a third party RF design package.
A Simulink model of the transistor with the LC matching circuits is created to show how S-parameter models can be incorporated in the Simulink environment.
