SimSmith is Smith Chart software that was introduced and described in an article in QRP Quarterly earlier in the year. I recently made some substantial improvements to SimSmith. These are:
- Added a library function to allow you to save and restore tuned circuit elements.
- Added some new components including a transformer.
- Added a ‘print’ function
- Improved the ‘save’ and ‘load’ commands.
If you are interested in getting the newest update or in learning about Smith Charts in general, please visit my page http://www.ae6ty.com/Smith_Charts.html
The newest version in 4.2. It is written in Java so you need only download “SimSmith-4.2.jar”. There is no installation necessary, only a working Java Runtime Environment. This code has been tested on Macs, Windows, and Linux.
I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds pretty cool to me.
