2016-E7C: Filters and matching networks: types of networks; types of filters; filter applications; filter characteristics; impedance matching; DSP filtering

2016-E7C01: How are the capacitors and inductors of a low-pass filter Pi-network arranged between the network's input and output?

A capacitor is connected between the input and ground, another capacitor is connected between the output and ground, and an inductor is connected between input and output

Two inductors are in series between the input and output, and a capacitor is connected between the two inductors and ground

Two capacitors are in series between the input and output, and an inductor is connected between the two capacitors and ground

An inductor is connected between the input and ground, another inductor is connected between the output and ground, and a capacitor is connected between the input and output

2016-E7C02: Which of the following is a property of a T-network with series capacitors and a parallel shunt inductor?

It is a high-pass filter

It is a low-pass filter

It is a band-pass filter

It is a notch filter

2016-E7C03: What advantage does a Pi-L-network have over a regular Pi-network for impedance matching between the final amplifier of a vacuum-tube transmitter and an antenna?

Greater harmonic suppression

Higher efficiency

Lower losses

Greater transformation range

2016-E7C04: How does an impedance-matching circuit transform a complex impedance to a resistive impedance?
