Various Components and Their System Parameters
An RF and microwave system consists of many different components connected by transmission lines. In general, the components are classiﬁed as passive components and active (or solid-state) components. The passive components include resistors, capacitors, inductors, connectors, transitions, transformers, tapers, tuners, matching networks, couplers, hybrids, power dividers=combiners, baluns, resonators, ﬁlters, multiplexers, isolators, circulators, delay lines, and antennas. ...
