Abstract

The analysis of high speed digital interconnects using a generalised time domain scattering parameters is presented. The scattering parameters can represent any arbitrary N-port passive network under an impedance reference system, and can be obtained from measurements. A time domain simulation of pulse propagation through a tapered line is performed, the results of which are shown and used in the preliminary evaluation of the performance enhancement of a low-noise satellite receiver amplifier. This work forms a general basis for the investigation of the exponential tapered line for use in high speed detection circuits. 1 Introduction The transmission lines and their associated interconnec
