Impedance matching parameters

Last Updated: September 20, 2011
Question: 

What is the impedance matching parameters for WirelessUSB Lp?

Answer: 

The primary functions of an antenna are to provide the transfer of electromagnetic energy to and from the atmosphere and match the impedance of the transmission line feed (typically 50 ohms) and the impedance of free space (377 ohms). An antenna essentially provides a means of converting electrical energy into electromagnetic waves for transmission and reconverting the electromagnetic waves into electrical energy for reception.
