Abstract : The computer-aided procedures for systematic design of lumped and distributed element even-order amplifier matching networks are extended to include odd-order networks. The gain-bandwidth performance of general odd-order networks as well as that of several specific odd-order topologies of special interest are discussed. Practical monolithic input, output, and interstage matching network topologies using both lumped and distributed elements are shown, and the potential for reducing required chip area by using networks of 3rd order in lieu of 4th order is shown for both low-noise and power amplifier examples. Analytical techniques are presented for computing the maximum realizable value of the denominator polynomial constant of odd-order gain functions in both the lumped and distributed element cases for 3rd order networks of arbitrary ripple, bandwidth, minimum insertion loss, and gain slope.
