ECE 3317 Prof David R Jackson Notes Lines Time omain Disclaimer Transmission lines is the subject of Chapter 6 in the book However the subject of wave propagation in the time domain is not treated very thoroughly there Therefore the material from Notes 6 is not taken from the book A transmission line is a twoconductor system that is used to transmit a signal from one point to another point Two common examples coaxial cable twin line A transmission line is normally used in the balanced mode meaning equal and opposite currents and charges on the two conductors Here s what they look like in reallife coaxial cable twin line Another common example for printed circuit boards microstrip line 52 LED EZZSSSI microstrip line USB Hub Ports Ne01973 Debug Port Some practical notes Coaxial cable is a perfectly shielded system no interference Twin line is not a shielded system more susceptible to noise and interference Twin line may be improved by using a form known as twisted pair 5 239 twin line At coax I symbol Z Note We use this schematic to represent a general transmission line no matter what the actual shape of the conductors These are per unit length parameters C capacitancelength

accounts for the strip thickness Transmissionline theory is valid at any frequency and for any type of waveform assuming an ideal transmission line Transmissionline theory is perfectly consistent with Maxwell39s equations although we work with voltage and current rather than electric and magnetic fields Circuit theory does not view two wires as a quottransmission linequot it cannot predict effects such as single propagation distortion etc

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Janice Dongeun University of Washington

"I used the money I made selling my notes & study guides to pay for spring break in Olympia, Washington...which was Sweet!"

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
