rfdata.data class

Package: rfdata

Store result of circuit object analysis


h = rfdata.data
h = rfdata.data('Property1',value1,'Property2',value2,...)


Use the data class to store S-parameters, noise figure in decibels, and frequency-dependent, third-order output (OIP3) intercept points.

There are three ways to create an rfdata.data object:

  • You can construct it by specifying its properties from workspace data using the rfdata.data constructor.

  • You can create it from file data using the read method.

  • You can perform frequency domain analysis of a circuit object using the analyze method, and RF Toolbox™ software stores the results in an rfdata.data object.

h = rfdata.data returns a data object whose properties all have their default values.

h = rfdata.data('Property1',value1,'Property2',value2,...) returns a data object, h, based on the specified properties. Properties that you do not specify retain their default values.

Use the read method to read data from a file.

RF Data Object From a .s2p Data File

file = 'default.s2p';
h = read(rfdata.data,file);  % Read file into data object.
plot(h,'s21','db');   % Plot dB(S21) in XY plane.
