This is the second edition of Electronic Applications of the Smith Chart, written by Phillip H. Smith, the originator of the Smith Chart. It covers the history, development and applications of the Smith Chart. This classic reference book describes how the chart is used for designing lumped element and transmission line circuits. The text provides tutorial material on transmission line theory and behavior, circuit representation on the chart, matching networks, network transformations and broadband matching. This edition includes a new chapter with example designs and description of the winSMITH software accessory.

Phillip H. Smith, 1905-1987. Phillip Smith earned his BSEE degree at Tufts College, majoring in electrical communications. He worked for Bell Telephone Laboratories from 1928 to 1970. He is the creator of the Smith Chart for use in solving transmission line problems and this was put into use at the M.I.T. Radiation Laboratory and other sites.
He holds 20 U.S. patents in the microwave filed, including the basic patent on the transmission line matching stub the Cloverleaf Antenna, and the optimum power ratio coaxial transmission line. Mr. Smith also worked with the Signal Corps laboratories on radar. Later, he worked on early microwave radar antenna developments for submarine use under W.H. Doherty. Phil was active in the IRE and later the IEEE from 1947 onwards.
