Tech doc: Microwave Filters, Impedance-Matching Networks, and Coupling Structures

Posted on Thursday, August 30th, 2012 in documentation, RF, vintage by the machinegeek


Drone writes to inform us about the release of a major tech document from the early days of microwave development.

The seminal 1963 1,096 page tome on microwave filters by Matthaei, Jones, and Young, “Microwave Filters, Impedance-Matching Networks, and Coupling Structures” has been released to the public via the U.S. Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). This is largely because this work done through the Stanford Research Institute was Department of Defense (DoD) funded. This is arguably the most complete reference ever on microwave filters. Normally even used copies of this book go for more than $100 USD. But at this price, this book should be on every EE’s virtual bookshelf.

The 1000+ page PDF is provided as a two volume download:
Volume 1, and
Volume 2.

This is deep tech documentation for hard core microwave design enthusiasts.

    Wow, very interesting – thanks a lot!
    I’ve looked at the DTIC website and found the links there as follows. This may help to take off some load from the m’101 site:

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
