Microwave Tools - 1st National Prize
Microwave Tools is a set of tools aiming to help the RF and microwave designer in several areas of his work. The interactive Smith chart provides a way to visualize impedance matching through the entire circuit. The filter design window helps to design the main filter topologies by calculating the filters coefficient, and proposing the components values far several different practical realizations. The other tools provided are a microstrip synthesis/analysis window, and a complex-number calculator.
