About the Author
The legendary Smith chart inventor's classic reference book describes how the chart is used for designing lumped element and transmission line circuits.
Table of Contents
Provides tutorial material on transmission line theory and behavior, circuit representation on the chart, matching networks, network transformations and broadband matching. Includes a new chapter with examples designs and description of the 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.

Phillip H. Smith, 1905-1987. Phillip Smith earned his BSEE degree at Tufts College, majoring in electrical communications. He worked for Bell Telephone Laboratories from 1928 to 1970. He is the creator of the Smith Chart for use in solving transmission line problems and this was put into use at the M.I.T. Radiation Laboratory and other sites. He holds 20 U.S. patents in the microwave filed, including the basic patent on the transmission line matching stub the Cloverleaf Antenna, and the optimum power ratio coaxial transmission line.
Mr. Smith also worked with the Signal Corps laboratories on radar. Later, he worked on early microwave radar antenna developments for submarine use under W.H. Doherty. Phil was active in the IRE and later the IEEE from 1947 on.
