Interference Rejection in a UWB System: An Example of LC Driving Point Synthesis

  • Suhash Chandra Dutta Roy

Synthesis of an LC driving point function is one of the initial topics in the study of network synthesis. This chapter gives a practical example of application of such synthesis in the design of a notch filter for interference rejection in an ultra wide-band (UWB) system. The example can used to motivate students to learn network synthesis with all seriousness, and not merely as a matter of academic exercise.
