I want to know the transformation ratio of this input balun,if the input impedance is 50Ohm,so I want to know the out impedance through this balun?

I think these are 1:1 balun so output impedance and input impedance is same..50Ohm..

Hi Swild
if the TL characteristic impedance is 50, the ratio is 1:1.

I think this is relevant, what is the ratio if the TL impedance Z0 is 25 Ohms? I see a lot of situations of this kind in my everyday work, and the length of TL is normally 1/8 wave length.

Thanks!
If the impedance is 25ohm.the ratio is 4:1! and the balanced port have a 6.25ohm (one port),is it true?

As the schematic clarifies, the TL impedance is 50 ohm.

Apart from this point, it's unclear however, because it doesn't tell about the TL geometry. The coupling of both lines definitely matters, there may be possibly a core not shown in the schematic. From the schematic allone, it can't be determined, if the structure is operating as a resonant (λ/4 or whatever) transmission line transformer or a wideband balun.

Hi All

to Swild: Thanks, if the length is λ/4, your answer is right, what I really want to know is the wide-band case, which often shows itself as a λ/8 cable (at mid-band)

to FvM: if TL impedance is 50, than the length is irrelevant, the ratio will always be 1:1. As to the coupling effect you mentioned, I think the other cable is used here only to balance the (supposed) balanced port of transformer, and there is no signal at that cable, so in the first order, no coupling will be detected.


Best Regards
Julian
