This video demonstrates a very effective RF impedance matching methodology with SMT devices that helps RF engineers save time and cost. With this methodology, RF engineers can start to match the design with a list of good combinations of SMT devices which satisfies the target impedance and loss specifications instead of trying out unlimited possibilities at the workbench. This methodology should work very well with typical wireless or mobile product designs such as smart phones.
