2.4 GHz Voltage Control RF Coupler
Advisors: Dr. Santiago Navarro and Dr. S.N. Prasad
The recent trend in wireless communications has been to make the end
product smaller and smaller. In order to reduce it's size, the individual
components' sizes need to be decreased. One component that needs to be
made small is a matched variable attenuator. One of the senior projects
from last year was a 2.4 GHz matched variable attenuator. The following
report describes the research and design of an improved attenuator. The
report introduces the attenuator by discussing the attenuator designed
last year. A detailed description of the design improvement procedure and
the simulation using the software HP-EEsof is presented. The fabrication
and testing procedure using the network analyzer is then discussed in the
report. Finally, the test results of the improved attenuator are compared
and contrasted with the attenuator that was designed and tested last year.
