Hi I am new with RF and I am trying to do impedance matching between LNA (BGA2001)and Mixer (MAX2112). The output reflection coefficient ΓL=0.5348∠70.8°. The characteristic impedance Z0 of PCB is 50 Ohm. The input impedance of MAX2112 is 75 Ohm. My question is should I use one LC network to match directly from ΓL to 75 Ohm, or should I use one LC network to match ΓL to 50 Ohm, then use another LC network to match 50 Ohm to 75 Ohm? Thank you!
