    Calculating the mu parameter for a 2-port device stability

    When calculating the unconditionally stability of a 2-port device, is it enough to calculate the mu parameter (mu>1 => unconditionally stable) or do I have to calculate as well the accompanying parameter mu' (or mu_prime) and also see if that is >1? Or is the case so that whenever the mu>1, the mu_prime is >1 as well?

    Re: 2-port stability

    Hi
    mu and mu_prime must be>1

    Re: 2-port stability

    I found the answer by myself:

    "A related parameter μ' can also be used, it is always bigger than one when μ is, so it doesn't give new information for the purpose of determining unconditional stability"

    source:

    http://bmf.ece.queensu.ca/mediawiki/...plifier_Design

    Similar conclusion I came as well as I read the original IEEE paper "A new criterion for linear 2-port stability using a single geometrically derived parameter" by Marion Lee Edwards.

    So it enough if mu>1, there's no need to calculate mu_prime.
