This paper reports on a novel lumped balun topology, the second-order lattice balun, with broad-band performance. The design is based on synthetic transmission lines operating as impedance transformers. The characteristic impedance of the synthetic transmission lines may be chosen to obtain inherent impedance transformation. An analytical investigation(More)
A general equivalent-circuit-based method for the de-embedding of scattering parameters is presented. An equivalent circuit representation is used to model the embedding package. The parameters in the models are estimated with a statistical method using measured data from all de-embedding standards jointly together. Hence, it is possible to assess parameter(More)
This paper reports on compact tunable true-time delay lines based on ferroelectric (Ba/sub 0.25/Sr/sub 0.75/TiO/sub 3/) varactors integrated on high-resistivity silicon. The delay lines are based on lumped elements, physically implemented as synthetic coplanar-strip lines. An approximate analytical design procedure, exactly valid for /spl omega//spl rarr/0,(More)
A superconductor bandpass filter with tunable central frequency in the range of 2-3.5 GHz has been implemented using superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). The filter is designed using two pi-network resonators connected by a transmission line. Both resonators have a SQUID inductor with a tuning range of 65-200 pH, controlled by current(More)

A novel radio receiver circuit, functioning as a tuned active, detecting antenna, is described. The receiver is suggested to be part of a new radio system with the potential of competing with the range capability of active RFID-tags and, through its low power and long lifetime, with passive RFID-tags. The circuit is outlined and the functionality is(More)
