This lesson covers the properties of S-parameters in microwave integrated circuits, with a focus on their application to two-port networks. It delves into the conditions for reciprocity and losslessness, and how these conditions affect the parameters of the networks. The lesson also explains how to calculate S-parameters from first principles using a simple series reactor as an example. It further discusses the importance of input and output reflection coefficients in two-port networks and how to calculate them. The lesson concludes with a brief introduction to signal flow graphs, which simplify the analysis of signal flow, especially when dealing with incident and reflected waves.
