rfckt.series class

Package: rfckt

Series connected network

Syntax

h = rfckt.series
h = rfckt.series('Property1',value1,'Property2',value2,...)

Description

Use the series class to represent networks of linear RF objects connected in series that are characterized by the components that make up the network. The following figure shows a pair of networks in a series configuration.

h = rfckt.series returns a series connected network object whose properties all have their default values.

h = rfckt.series('Property1',value1,'Property2',value2,...) returns a series connected network object, h, based on the specified properties. Properties that you do not specify retain their default values.
