skrf.network.s2t

skrf.network.s2t(s)[source]

Converts scattering parameters [1] to scattering transfer parameters [2] .

transfer parameters are also refered to as ‘wave cascading matrix’, this function only operates on 2N-ports networks with same number of input and output ports, also known as ‘balanced networks’.

Parameters:s (numpy.ndarray (shape fx2nx2n)) – scattering parameter matrix
Returns:t – scattering transfer parameters (aka wave cascading matrix)
Return type:numpy.ndarray
