Abstract: The greatest challenges to RF power devices are to match impedance for coupled network. Many causes for improper impedance results in cable loss, reflection losses and hence reduce the performance of existing system. An Impedance tuner is designed for testing prior to final set up to get satisfactory output with saving time. In modern communication systems many technologies are adding relay coils and other compensating passive components. In this paper, an impedance matching tuner is designed for multiband application with compact and cost effective structure. The characteristics of fabricated tuner is designed for 50 ohm matching two port network .The designed Electro mechanical tuner is manually characterised on the basis of experimental results to validate the system. The results suggest that it works for multiband sub GHz, Bluetooth sensor application.
