Smith chart

[′smith ‚chärt]
(electromagnetism)
A special polar diagram containing constant-resistance circles, constant-reactance circles, circles of constant standing-wave ratio, and radius lines representing constant line-angle loci; used in solving transmission-line and waveguide problems.

The FPC1500 can perform reflection measurements, allowing users to measure impedance on antennas or RF circuits with the Smith chart display or use distance-to-fault measurements to detect faulty locations on a long RF cable.
Smith Chart displays with optional Vector Network Analysis Mode
Software features include: plot formats (Smith chart, impedance, SWR, reference coefficient, return loss); open, short & load calibration modes; measurement export and marker readouts.

It is not exactly a dynamical model but aims at estimating the impedance variability region on the Smith chart and is based on statistical measurements.
However, it remains difficult to access to a proper measurement of the impedance, which has a strong positive imaginary part, placing the impedance at the right of the Smith chart.
Designed for measuring coaxial and waveguide systems, Site Master S820E conducts all key one-port measurements, iv 2014 such as return loss, VSWR, cable loss, DTF, phase, and Smith Chart. Users can also conduct two-port transmission measurements and two-port cable loss tests with it.
The input impedance values looking into points (A-C) for both on and off states are indicated on the Smith chart, as shown in Fig.
Smith chart is a graphical tool for solving transmission line problems which was developed by P.
The input impedance of the radiating part of a CPW CRLH antenna structure may be derived also by using the Smith chart in a reverse manner.
