Abstract:

 

The invention of Smith Chart by Phillip H Smith in 1905 have evolved to date and helped engineering design, and EMC.  The presentation, demonstrate how to use the Smith Chart to represent key parameters of interest in addressing EMC problem solving:
 
1)      Black Magic Design of Smith Chart Revealed.
2)      What is unity circle?
3)      Stability analysis
4)      Impedance
5)      Admittance
6)      Reflection coefficients
7)      Scattering parameters
8)      Noise figure circles
9)      Constant gain contours
10)  Region of unconditional stability
 
There are many software’s available to plot the information on Smith Chart (ex:  Serenade, and Smith 191), the presentation will demonstrate the Manual Vs the Soft copy.  Interpretation of data on the Smith Chart requires a good understanding of AC theory and transmission line theory, both of which are prerequisites for an EMC and RF Engineer.
