s2sdd

Convert 4-port, single-ended S-parameters to 2-port, differential-mode S-parameters (Sdd)

Description

example

sdd_params = s2sdd(s_params)converts the 2N-port, single-ended S-parameters to N-port, differential-mode S-parameters.

sdd_params = s2sdd(s_params,option) converts S-parameters based on the optional option argument, which indicates the port-ordering convention of the S-parameters.

Examples

Create a sparameters object from a data file.

sparams = sparameters('default.s4p');

Create a data object to store the differential S-parameters.

diffSparams = rfdata.network;
diffSparams.Freq = sparams.Frequencies;
diffSparams.Data = s2sdd(sparams.Parameters);
diffSparams.Z0 = 2*sparams.Impedance;

Create a new circuit object with the data from the data object.

diffCkt = rfckt.passive;
diffCkt.NetworkData = diffSparams;

Analyze the new circuit object.

frequencyRange = diffCkt.NetworkData.Freq;
ZL = 50;
ZS = 50;
Z0 = diffSparams.Z0;
analyze(diffCkt,frequencyRange,ZL,ZS,Z0);
diffData = diffCkt.AnalyzedResult;

Write the differential S-parameters into a Touchstone data file.

write(diffCkt,'diffsparams.s2p')
ans = logical

Convert network data to differential-mode S-Parameters using the default port ordering.

S = sparameters('default.s4p'); 
s4p = S.Parameters; 
s_dd = s2sdd(s4p);

To display differential-mode S-Parameters at the first frequency, type the following command:

s_dd2 = s_dd(:,:,1)
s_dd2 = 2×2 complex

  -0.0124 - 0.0433i  -0.5434 - 0.6872i
  -0.5428 - 0.6900i  -0.0192 - 0.0504i

Input Arguments

2N-port single-ended S-Parameters, specified as a complex 2N-by-2N-by-M array, where M represents the number of frequency points of 2N-port single-ended S-Parameters.

Port order, a scalar, specified as 1, 2, or 3. Port order determines how the function orders the ports:

  • 1s2sdd pairs the odd-numbered ports together first, followed by the even-numbered ports. For example, in a single-ended, 8-port network:

    • Ports 1 and 3 become differential-mode pair 1.

    • Ports 5 and 7 become differential-mode pair 2.

    • Ports 2 and 4 become differential-mode pair 3.

    • Ports 6 and 8 become differential-mode pair 4.

    The following figure illustrates this convention for an 8-port device.

  • 2s2sdd pairs the input and output ports in ascending order. For example, in a single-ended, 8-port network:

    • Ports 1 and 2 become differential-mode pair 1.

    • Ports 3 and 4 become differential-mode pair 2.

    • Ports 5 and 6 become differential-mode pair 3.

    • Ports 7 and 8 become differential-mode pair 4.

    The following figure illustrates this convention for an 8-port device.

  • 3s2sdd pairs the input ports in ascending order and the output ports in descending order. For example, in a single-ended, 8-port network:

    • Ports 1 and 2 become differential-mode pair 1.

    • Ports 3 and 4 become differential-mode pair 2.

    • Ports 8 and 7 become differential-mode pair 3.

    • Ports 6 and 5 become differential-mode pair 4.

    The following figure illustrates this convention for an 8-port device.
