Default 75 to 50 ohm minimum loss pad

Hi

can't find the notes for a minimum loss pad, anybody who remember the
values? It should be easy to calculate, but I am not in the mood for
doing so at the moment

Here. Hot out of the math package. Assuming I know what I'm talking
about it's an L with series 43.3 & shunt 86.6 (theoretical). Should be
6dB of attenuation.

Series resistor on 75 ohm side is 43.3 ohms. Parallel resistor on 50
ohm side is 86.6 ohms.

Their calcs yield a design with R1 (in series with the 75-ohm source)
being 43.3 ohms, and R2 (in shunt with the 50-ohm load) being 86.6
ohms.

thanks to all, I almost remembered it an hour after asking

Use program PADMATCH for T, Pi, L and minimum loss pads between any pair of
terminating resistances.

Faint bells ring... 43 ohms is a standard value, and 86.6 is pretty
close to 100 paralleled by 680.

For testing 75-ohm TVI filters in a 50-ohm system, it's very handy to
make up a pair of those pads as inter-series adaptors.
