Data Import and Network Parameters

Read Touchstone files; import, manipulate, and convert network parameters such as S-parameters

Use RF Toolbox™ functions to read RF data and use network parameters created from industry standard Touchstone files (.s2p, .y2p, .z2p, and .h2p).

To understand how this toolbox represents S-parameters, see S-Parameter Notation.

You can convert multi-port network parameters among different formats (S,Z, Y, H, G,T, ABCD). For example, Y-parameters are convenient for working with RLC circuits, whereas S-parameters are better for visualizing frequency responses.

You can also convert single-ended S-parameters to mixed mode S-parameters, extract M-port S-parameters from N-port S-parameters or change the characteristic impedance.

To learn what you can do with network parameters, see RF Network Parameter Objects.

Note

RF Toolbox does not support Touchstone 2.0 files.
