Abstract
This paper reports design of a new dual-band T-type impedance transformer also exhibiting DC-blocking feature. The design aims at achieving matching for frequency-dependent complex loads having distinct values at two arbitrary frequencies to Zs (here, 50 Ω). A step-wise analysis on the developed dual-band impedance transformer provides simple closed-form design equations. The design is verified by extensive simulation in Agilent ADS. For experimental verification a PCB prototype is fabricated using FR-4 material, operating at 1.45 GHz and 2.61 GHz. A good result is obtained confirming the theory and simulation.
