Convert ABCD-parameters to S-parameters


s_params = abcd2s(abcd_params,z0)


s_params = abcd2s(abcd_params,z0) converts the ABCD-parameters abcd_params into the scattering parameters s_params. The abcd_params input is a complex 2N-by-2N-by-M array, representing M 2N-port ABCD-parameters. z0 is the reference impedance; its default is 50 ohms. The function assumes that the ABCD-parameter matrices have distinct A, B, C, and D submatrices:

s_params is a complex 2N-by-2N-by-M array, representing M 2N-port S-parameters.

Define a matrix of ABCD-parameters.

A =      0.999884396265344 +  0.000129274757618717i;
B =      0.314079483671772 +      2.51935878310427i;
C = -6.56176712108866e-007 + 6.67455405306704e-006i;
D =      0.999806365547959 +  0.000247230611054075i;
abcd_params = [A,B; C,D]
abcd_params = 2×2 complex

   0.9999 + 0.0001i   0.3141 + 2.5194i
  -0.0000 + 0.0000i   0.9998 + 0.0002i

Convert these ABCD parameters to S-parameters.

s_params = abcd2s(abcd_params)
s_params = 2×2 complex

   0.0038 + 0.0248i   0.9961 - 0.0250i
   0.9964 - 0.0254i   0.0037 + 0.0249i
