# z2s

Convert Z-parameters to S-parameters

## Description

example

s_params = z2s(z_params,z0) converts the Z-parameters to the S-parameters.

## Examples

collapse all

Define a matrix of Z-parameters.

Z11 = -14567.2412789287 - 148373.315116592i;
Z12 = -14588.1106171651 - 148388.583516562i;
Z21 = -14528.0522132692 - 148350.705757767i;
Z22 = -14548.5996561832 - 148363.457002006i;
z_params = [Z11,Z12; Z21,Z22];

Convert Z-parameters to S-parameters.

s_params = z2s(z_params)
s_params = 2×2 complex

## Input Arguments

collapse all

N-port Z-parameters, specified as an N-by-N-by-M array of complex numbers, where M represents the number of frequency points of N-port Z-parameters.

Reference impedance in ohms, specified as one of the following:

• Positive real scalar when you want to specify the same the reference impedance for all ports in the network.

• Positive real vector of length N when you want to specify a different reference impedance for each port in the N-port network. (since R2023a)

• Positive real vector of length K when you want to specify a different reference impedance for each in the K frequencies in the data. (since R2023a)

If the reference impedance is a vector and the number of ports N equals the number of data frequencies K, N == K, then the sparameters object will assign each element of the vector to each port of the network. To specify reference impedances for each frequency in this case, specify Z0 as a 3-D vector of length 1-by-1-by-K.

## Output Arguments

collapse all

N-port S-parameters, returned as a N-by-N-by-M array of complex numbers, where M representing number of frequency points of N-port S-parameters.
