RF Analysis

When you analyze an RF circuit using RF Toolbox™ software, your workflow might include the following tasks:

  1. Select RF circuit objects to represent the components of your RF network.

    See Create RF Objects.

  2. Define component data by:

  3. Where applicable, perform network parameter conversions on imported file data.

    See Process File Data for Analysis.

  4. Integrate components to form a cascade, hybrid, parallel, or series network.

    See Construct Networks of Specified Components.

  5. Analyze the network in the frequency domain.

    See Analyze Networks in the Frequency Domain.

  6. Generate plots to gain insight into network behavior.

    The following plots and charts are available in the toolbox:

    • Rectangular plots

    • Polar plots

    • Smith® Chart

    • Budget plots (for cascaded S-parameters)

    See Visualize Component and Network Data.

  7. Compute the network transfer function.

    See Compute the Network Transfer Function.

  8. Create an RF model object that describes the transfer function analytically.

    See Fit a Model Object to Circuit Object Data.

  9. Plot the time-domain response.

    See Compute and Plot the Time-Domain Response.

  10. Export a Verilog-A description of the network.

    See Export a Verilog-A Model.
