## Can a Smith Chart be used as admittance chart?

Another way to read the admittances on the Smith chart is to use combination of impedance/admittance (Z/I) chart, Figure fig:SCDerscadmimp1. To make the Z/Y chart, we rotate the impedance Smith Chart for to get the admittance point at the same position as the impedance point.

**Can a Smith Chart can be used as an admittance chart give reasons for your answer?**

The Smith chart can be used to calculate admittances, a feature very useful in designing impedance matching circuits. The normalized admittance occurs on the reflection coefficient circle, diametrically opposite to the normalized impedance.

**What does a Smith Chart tell you?**

The Smith Chart is used to display an actual (physical) antenna’s impedance when measured on a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA). Smith Charts were originally developed around 1940 by Phillip Smith as a useful tool for making the equations involved in transmission lines easier to manipulate.

### What are the two circles on the Smith chart?

The normalised impedance Smith chart is composed of two families of circles: circles of constant normalised resistance and circles of constant normalised reactance.

**How do you use a Smith chart for impedance matching?**

The procedure for this is as follows:

- Determine the impedance as a spot on the Smith chart.
- Find the reflection coefficient (Γ) for the impedance.
- Having the characteristic impedance and Γ, find the impedance.
- Convert the impedance to admittance.
- Find the equivalent impedance.

**How is load admittance calculated?**

In equation [1], Y_L is the admittance of the load, which is the inverse of the impedance of the load (Z_L). The real part of Y_L is written as C, and is known as the conductance. The imaginary part of Y_L is written as S, and is known as the susceptance. In equation [3], Y_0 is equal to 1/Z_0.

## What are the advantages of Smith Chart?

The main advantage of the Smith Chart is that one can, with experience, quickly glean qualitative relationships. For example, at a glance one can tell from the Smith Chart that: the circuit is matched at the center frequency. the circuit has the same amount of mismatch at the edge frequencies.

### Why is a Smith chart necessary?

While the use of paper Smith charts for solving the complex mathematics involved in matching problems has been largely replaced by software based methods, the Smith chart is still a very useful method of showing how RF parameters behave at one or more frequencies, an alternative to using tabular information.

**How to read the admittances on the Smith chart?**

Another way to read the admittances on the Smith chart is to use combination of impedance/admittance (Z/I) chart, Figure fig:SCDerscadmimp1. To make the Z/Y chart, we rotate the impedance Smith Chart for to get the admittance point at the same position as the impedance point.

**How to make an impedance&admittance Smith chart?**

Impedance & Admittance on Smith Charts Admittance Coordinates 2 We could have derived the Smith chart in terms of admittance. You can make an admittance Smith Chart by rotating the standard Smith chart by 180. Impedance/Admittance Conversion

## What is the Smith chart in physics?

The Smith chart is just a plot of complex numbers. These could be admittance as well as impedance. To determine admittance from impedance (or the other way around)…

**How to determine the admittance value of Γ L?**

Thus, use the admittance mapping at that point to determine the admittance value of Γ L Note that rotating the entire Smith Chart, while keeping the point Γ L fixed on the complex Γ plane, is a difficult maneuver to successfully—as well as accurately—execute. But, realize that rotating the entire Smith Chart 180Dwith respect to point Γ L
