termination
The load connected to a transmission line, circuit, or device. Note: For a uniform transmission line, if the termination impedance is equal to the characteristic impedance of the line, wave reflections from the end of the line will be avoided. [From Weik '89] 2. In hollow metallic waveguides, the point at which energy propagating in the waveguide continues in a nonwaveguide propagation mode into a load. [From Weik '89] 3. An impedance, often resistive, that is connected to a transmission line or piece of equipment as a dummy load, for test purposes.
