Homework Statement


Design a π section symmetrical attenuator to provide a voltage attenuation of 15 dB and a characteristic impedance of 600 Ω.

Zc=600Ω,[itex]\alpha[/itex]=15dB (attenuation)
Z1,Z3=?

Homework Equations




The Attempt at a Solution



[itex]\alpha[/itex][dB]=20log(Vin/Vout)=15
[itex]\alpha[/itex]=5.623

Vin/Vout=(Z1+Z2)/Z1

Zc=√ZocZsc
Zoc=(Z1(Z1+Z3))/(2Z1+Z3)
Zsc=(Z1Z3)/(Z1+Z3)

Zc=Z1√1-2/(2+Z3/Z1)

Z1D=600

Z3/Z1=4.623
D=0.835

Z1=718Ω
Z3=3320Ω

I'd be inclined to show the arrows for Vin and Vout upside down to how you have, though I guess it makes no difference.

Vin/Vout=(Z1+Z2)/Z1 should be Z3 not Z2

Your figures give -15 dB, and 609.6 ohms for Zin
