Recorded originally in 1986 and now available on CD-ROM for the first time, this course contains approximately
12-hours of instruction on the fundamentals of microwave filters, couplers and matching networks. Included is a
thorough review of the common types of filter responses and calculations, filter realization, and various methods
of filter design, including bandpass, network theory and Kuroda. Subsequent sessions cover the fundamentals of
directional couplers. A final session describes distributed element matching networks and a matching network
design example.
