- skrf.network.connect(ntwkA, k, ntwkB, l, num=1)¶
Connect two n-port networks together.
Connect ports k thru k+num-1 on ntwkA to ports l thru l+num-1 on ntwkB. The resultant network has (ntwkA.nports+ntwkB.nports-2*num) ports. The port indices (‘k’,’l’) start from 0. Port impedances are taken into account. When the two networks have overlapping frequencies, the resulting network will contain only the overlapping frequencies.
The effect of mis-matched port impedances is handled by inserting a 2-port ‘mismatch’ network between the two connected ports. This mismatch Network is calculated with the
ntwkC – new network of rank (ntwkA.nports + ntwkB.nports - 2*num)
- Return type
To implement a cascade of two networks
>>> ntwkA = rf.Network('ntwkA.s2p') >>> ntwkB = rf.Network('ntwkB.s2p') >>> ntwkC = rf.connect(ntwkA, 1, ntwkB,0)
