In radio-frequency systems that drive coupled dissipative loads, the matching network between the amplifiers and their loads needs to account for the coupling. With N amplifiers driving N loads, a favorite choice is a “decoupling” network, which is a lossless reciprocal network that has N input ports connected to the sources and N output ports connected to… CONTINUE READING
