Using Baluns and RF Components for Impedance Matching

Sept. 6, 2022
Learn how to use wideband transformers and inductors to protect power sources from reflected energy and optimize overall circuit efficiency.

Impedance mismatch in a circuit causes energy to be reflected back to the source, reducing the amount of power available to the load and possibly causing damage to the power source. This application note describes how to use wideband transformers and inductors to match the output impedance of the power source to the input impedance of an electrical load, maximizing power transfer from source to load.
