History of the Smith Chart Developed in 1930’s by P.H. Smith as a way to plot the reflection coefficient and line impedances. Today it is widely used to describe passive and active RF/MW components and systems. Network Analyzers have the option to show measurements in a smith chart format. CAD Programs use smith charts for many purposes: Display measured circuit impedance Design matching networks Real time CAD tuning Computation of noise figures Gain Plot stability circles
