Wideband transformers couple signals magnetically from input to output terminals with optimum transmission reliability over broad frequency ranges. Major objectives in their use are:
- Impedance matching for maximum power transfer
- Coupling between unbalanced and balanced circuits (Baluns)
- DC isolation between input and output
- Ground Isolation for common mode rejection
- Signal distribution and mixing
