Abstract

Discusses the Smith Chart. Ever since Phillip Hagar Smith's seminal article [1], it has been a fruitful topic for authors, in particular those who wish to vandalize it in various ways, so finding anything new to say on the subject is a bit challenging. But I thought it might be at least entertaining to give some of my own recollections on the subject. It is argued that the role of the Smith chart has gradually transitioned from a raw calculation aid into a valuable format for the visualization of device and network characteristics. It is ironic that the rapid calculation ability of the modern computer may have usurped the calculation function of the chart but has greatly enhanced its use as a meaningful display format.
