Pasternack matching pads (resistive impedance transformers or minimum loss pads) are passive coaxial components that allow impedance matching between 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm systems without introducing a lot of reflection to the circuit. Matching pads from Pasternack are ideal for applications requiring a connection between a 50 Ohm cable and 75 Ohm system.
Matching pads from Pasternack are available in many male/female in-series and between-series connectorized configurations. Pasternack’s matching pads have very good VSWR levels ranging between 1:20:1 and 1:35:1 and are accurate within 0.5 dB and have frequencies ranging from 500 MHz to 3 GHz. Maximum attenuation loss for Pasternack's matching pads is 5.7dB.
