3D Smith Chart
| +3471173741 | Valencia, Spain
The 3D Smith chart tool is a (completely reconfigurable),
very easy to install software operating in Windows and programmed in Java for high frequency
engineering. The tool contains two modes: analysis mode (S parameters touchstone files based)
and design mode - both including a 2D and 3D Smith charts in Z/Y (impedance/ admittance versions).
Any s1p and s2p files can be imported (touchstone format). Parameters are plot on both 2D &
3D Smith charts in Z/Y reconfigurable format.
