3D Smith Chart
The 3D Smith chart site presents the new 3D Smith chart Java telecommunications design tool for high
frequency engineering. It uses the innovative 3D Smith Chart concept proposed by Andrei and co-authors in the article ” A 3D Smith chart based on the Riemann sphere for Active and Passive Microwave Circuits” ( IEEE Microwave and Wireless Communication Letters-2011).
The tool available on the site allows the user to visualize/ design circuit parameters for both active and passive circuits in the same time ( generalzing the Smith chart) on circles on a sphere ( surface of the unit ball)
The north hemisphere -passive circuits, South hemisphere-active circuits, East-inductive, West-capacitive, ( Latitudes and longitudes become handy notions on the new design tool)
