Designing Wideband Front Ends for GSPS Converters

Wideband RF signal processing poses two challenges: the converter design itself, and the front-end design that couples the signal content to the converter. In this webcast, what defines a wideband passive network will be discussed, in addition to highlighting the specifications that are important when choosing a transformer or balun.
