Title: Multistage matching network and related techniques

Abstract

Multistage matching networks and analytical frameworks for improving and/or optimizing the networks is provided. In one example, a framework relaxes the resistive constraint on the input and load impedances of the stages of a multistage matching network and allows them to be complex. Based on this framework, the design of multistage matching networks can be improved or optimized, such as using a method of Lagrange multipliers. A design optimization approach, for example, can be used to predict an optimum distribution of gains and impedance characteristics among the stages of a multistage matching network. The efficiency of matching networks designed using this example approach is compared with a conventional design approach, and it is shown that significant efficiency improvements are possible.
