Amazing application! This has become my go-to tool for matching circuits.
The extra dimension has made to visualize the plot in a way that is not possible for a traditional 2-D Smith chart.
Congratulations to Andrei Muller and his team. Keep going!
"Indeed a Game Changer
Thank you for introducing me to this amazing application. As a
student sometimes it is hard to understand some concepts. For instance,
matching a load with an LC network. By using this tool, we can learn fast
and solve problems accurately. This is an inevitable tool for the students
who want to excel in RF"
"This is wonderful idea to explore scattering parameters in a multi dimensional image. These three features are really amazing for me
1: 4 SNP's at the same time can be observed
2: The runtime frequency sweeping for all datasets
3: Simultaneous analysis of stability and gain curves"
Brilliant idea, excellent work! A great visualization tool for phenomena that are difficult to grasp by looking on the 2D Smith Chart! Many times, I have found myself baffled with how the S-parameters move around the 2D Smith Chart and always wondered what these trends actually mean. The answer is 3DSmithChart; this brilliant program demonstrates the trends of the S-parameters on the 3D Smith Chart enabling better comprehension compared to the original 2D projection map!
Prof. Georges A. Deschamps connected the concepts of Smith charts and non-Eucledian geometry in the early 1950's. His hyperbolic protractor was a fascinating, simple way to facilitate and to measure impedance transformations on the Smith chart. Andrei Mueller and his team have now taken the Smith chart to new heights. As Prof. D was my
Ph. D. advisor at UIUC, I can honestly say that he would have thoroughly enjoyed their new tools and would have enjoyed using them to develop yet new ways in which geometry could lead to a better understanding of wave physics and engineering. I personally am looking forward to exploring the 3D Smith chart tools for passive and active metamaterial-inspired radiating and scattering system applications.
Personally, I consider that 3D Smith Chart is a wonderful and useful tool to be used in the fields of design and analysis in all disciplines related to RF. Undoubtedly this application is excellent news for the RF Community. It is worth mentioning the fact that this program includes an educational module that is very useful for students, professors and professionals (RF engineers and Scientists) who need to deepen their studies in certain areas of interest such as metamaterials, for example. Surely, in the new versions, we will be surprised with improvements and novelties of this excellent tool. I want to express my sincere congratulations to the Andrei Muller's team and ask them not to stop, please continue on.
Amazing application.There is no doubt that the RF community is in luck! The application
developed by 3D Smith Chart is wonderful, amazing and very intuitive. The
engineer who usually uses the Smith Chart for his designs will find a very
useful and versatile tool that will allow him to better visualize the
parameters S. Congratulations for such a magnificent application.
The 3DSmithChart is a revolutionary and intuitive tool to understand the complexities of RF design. Its modern improvements allow us to tackle more challenging problems with ease. As a recent graduate of Electrical Engineering, I can only wish that I had access to this tool when learning RF concepts. At the University of Calgary, we will now provide students access to the 3DSmithChart so they can experiment and learn with this highly valuable tool.
"What a beautifull and brillant idea to unify in a signle elegant super geometrical space structures the reality of RF stage ! This new vision bring a two major points. In the point of view of science, it is a piece of art and show a deep message of the power of the geometrical approch that take part in the most fundamental physic such as Einstein relativity! For the enginner, it bring a new way to approch the amplifier design and optimisation. Enabling faster and more accurate reserch. This is a very deep powerfull tools that we have here !"
Very good news for the microwave engineering community! ... This new tool allows us to get all the potential of the 3D Smith Chart for the analysis and design of all kind of microwave networks. In addition, the software comes with an educational module which is very useful for engineers (or future engineers and students) who want to go deep into the amazing impedance matching world. Congratulations to the team!
Often in the biomaterials (microtubule, tubulin, actin, clathrin) we observed that the materials released more energy at certain frequencies than that applied to it. We reported it as negative resonance (Ghosh et al, J. Integr. Neurosci. 15, 403 (2016). Now we learn that this unique phenomenon is actually worked as PhD thesis by Andrei Muller and 3D Smithchart is gateway to the understanding of negative resonance that makes biological electronics far superior than man made materials. Very new world of geometric electronics will be born soon, 3D Smithchart would lead the way
There are a number of Smith Chart programs based on the 1939
publication by Phil Smith. Some are even very good. Some software authors are
ready to listen to users; many are not. However, there has not been anything
fundamentally new and potentially revolutionary in this impedance measurement
environment since PCs allowed rapid visualization and rendering. The
3DSmithChart team has created a scientifically sound, fundamentally new
approach! And, they willingly listen to insightful and practical input. It's
on my workbench workstation. I look forward to further innovation from the
Electromagnetic energy is quite mysterious for a layperson like me. The 3D Smith Chart appears as a crystal ball for looking into resistance, reactance, capacitance, inductance, impedance, etc. I use it as a toy to learn about the basic physical force that runs everywhere through our reality. Kudos to the people who developed such a nice tool!
[...] paradigm-changing design and analysis tool. 3D Smith Chart enables you to visualize S-parameter data in ways not possible from the Flatland dweller's perspective that is the traditional 2D Smith chart. [...]
3D Smith Chart does for the Smith chart what Einstein's concept of Relativity did for physics by adding the fourth dimension of time. Just as with most new concepts, the true value of the relatively new 3D Smith Chart (debuted in 2013) has not been grasped yet by the engineering world.
What a beautiful and brilliant idea to unify in a single elegant super geometrical space structure the reality of RF stage! This new vision adds two major points. In the point of view of science, it is a piece of art and shows a deep message of the geometrical approach that takes part in the most fundamental physic such as Einsteins relativity! For the engineer, it brings a new way to approach the amplifier design and optimization. Enabling faster and more accurate research. This is a very deep powerful tool that we have here!
