Hi,

Is it possible to get these characteristics of a RF Switch if you have the 2-port s-parameters when the switch is open and closed?

If so, can someone provide the equations or link me to them?

Thanks.

Convert {S11,S12,S21,S22} to {Y11,Y12,Y21,Y22}.

Evaluate
Gon=1/real(Y21) or 1/real(Y12)
and Coff=imag(Y21)/(2*pi*freq) or imag(Y12)/(2*pi*freq)

In @DS, there is a tool "spice model generator". It can generate the spice model.

Dumb question .... the Ron is the inverse of Gon ... correct?

Yes, correct.

I figured as much but was just making sure.

Is it possible to get mutual inductance between two coils using 2-port s-parameters? Instead of dividing by 2*pi*f should I multiply? If I'm wrong then what is the proper procedure?

Thanks for the help.

There is no reason why we can't evaluate mutual inductance from 2-port S-parameters.

V1=j*omega*L1*I1 + j*omega*M12*I2
V2=j*omega*M21*I1 + j*omega*L2*I2

Z12=j*omega*M12
Z21=j*omega*M21

Instead of dividing by 2*pi*f should I multiply?
I can't understand what on earth you want to mean at all.

I was thinking about impedance calculations and inductance. I probably mixed it all up. Forget I said that.

I have two coils that are in close proximity to each other and one port is on one coil and the other port (port 2) is on the other coil. I got 2-port S-parameters. Is there a similar way to calculate the mutual inductance between the two coils using the 2-port s-parameters?
