has anyone experience with
sma-connectors mounted on the solderside of an rf-circuit. By doing
this I can place the connectors at the optimal places on the board.
But I don't know how to simulate the sma-to-microstrip transitions with
Thank you fpr your help

you need a 3-D simulator. But the lumped element euivilent circuit is
a inductor with a capacitor to ground. Inductor for the connector. The
shunt capacitor models the coupling capacitanec to ground.

I don't have a 3D-Simulator. And the time to get familiar with
such a tool may not be short. Or is there any 3D-simulator for free?
