Enter y-parameters of a 2-port network, you can use SI suffixes in your numbers e.g. 10k would be 10 kilo. Capitalization matters, as 1m would be 1 milli and 1M would be 1 mega.


Maximizing gain is not always possible. If it is, the optimal values for the load and generator impedance can be found. Calculations are based on equations (34)-(36) from Chapter 3 of the book
