This is THE classic reference book from the legendary inventor of the Smith chart. The book
describes how the chart is used for designing lumped element and transmission line circuits,
provides tutorial material on transmission line theory and behavior, circuit representation
on the chart, matching networks, network transformations and broadband matching. This revised
edition includes a new chapter with examples designs and description of Noble Publishing's
winSmith software accessory.
Many computational instruments have succumbed to the power of the digital computer.
This is not the case with the Smith Chart. A testament to Phil's genius is that his
Smith Chart is still an important training tool and it has evolved into a new role
as a display grid on computer and instrument screens.
