s2sdc

Convert 4-port, single-ended S-parameters to 2-port, cross-mode S-parameters (Sdc)

Syntax

sdc_params = s2sdc(s_params)
sdc_params = s2sdc(s_params,option)

Description

sdc_params = s2sdc(s_params) converts the 2N-port, single-ended S-parameters, s_params, to N-port, cross-mode S-parameters, sdc_params. sdc_params is a complex N-by-N-by-M array that represents M N-port, cross-mode S-parameters (Sdc).

sdc_params = s2sdc(s_params,option) converts S-parameters based on the optional option argument, which indicates the port-ordering convention of the S-parameters.

Input Arguments

expand all

s_params — S-parametersarray

S-parameters, specified as a complex 4-by-4-by-M array, that represents M 4-port S-parameters.

option — Port order1 (default) | 2 | 3

Port order, specified as 1, 2, 3, determines how the function orders the ports:

  • 1s2sdc pairs the odd-numbered ports together first, followed by the even-numbered ports. For example, in a single-ended, 8-port network:

    • Ports 1 and 3 become cross-mode pair 1.

    • Ports 5 and 7 become cross-mode pair 2.

    • Ports 2 and 4 become cross-mode pair 3.

    • Ports 6 and 8 become cross-mode pair 4.

    The following figure illustrates this convention for an 8-port device.

  • 2s2sdc pairs the input and output ports in ascending order. For example, in a single-ended, 8-port network:

    • Ports 1 and 2 become cross-mode pair 1.

    • Ports 3 and 4 become cross-mode pair 2.

    • Ports 5 and 6 become cross-mode pair 3.

    • Ports 7 and 8 become cross-mode pair 4.

    The following figure illustrates this convention for an 8-port device.

  • 3s2sdc pairs the input ports in ascending order and the output ports in descending order. For example, in a single-ended, 8-port network:

    • Ports 1 and 2 become cross-mode pair 1.

    • Ports 3 and 4 become cross-mode pair 2.

    • Ports 8 and 7 become cross-mode pair 3.

    • Ports 6 and 5 become cross-mode pair 4.

    The following figure illustrates this convention for an 8-port device.

Examples

Convert network data to cross-mode S-parameters using the default port ordering:

 ckt = read(rfckt.passive,'default.s4p'); 
 s4p = ckt.NetworkData.Data; 
 s_dc = s2sdc(s4p);
