LineComp analyzes or synthesizes eighteen different single and coupled line transmission lines. Data is supplied in tabular and graphical form for either English or Metric units. These are:
SHIELDED MICROSTRIP has a metal conductor strip plated on a dielectric sheet with a bottom groundplane plated on the opposite side of the sheet as shown below. The analysis/synthesis may include a top shield if desired.
STRIPLINE consists of a single conductor strip sandwiched between two dielectric sheets with groundplanes plated on the opposite sides
A typical Analysis/Synthesis window is shown on the right. Input physical and electrical parameters are entered on the left of the menu. Computed parameters are on the right of the window. A drawing of the line to be synthesized/analyzed is also shown.
A top menu is provided for printing or saving the window. You may also select to include an optional title or change the units to a variety of metric or English units.
If desired you may plot the output data over a range of values or print out a numerical tabulation over a range of values.
The Media Selection Menu is shown below which shows the choices for single and coupled transmission lines.
OFFSET STRIPLINE consists of a single conductor strip plated on a dielectric sheet suspended between two groundplanes.
BROADSIDE STRIPLINE has a single conductor strip oriented vertically with respect to the groundplanes.
ROUND ROD STRUCTURE consists of a single rod between two groundplanes. A dielectric material may fill the spaces.
