The AWR Design Environment Transmission Line Calculator lets you calculate and set transmission line dimensions for a specified impedance and electrical length directly from microstrip, stripline, coplanar/rectangular waveguide, or coaxial components on a schematic, accelerating the design of distributed networks such as Wilkinson dividers, Branchline couplers, and quarter-wave transformers.
The MLIN, MCLIN, SLIN, SCLIN, S1LIN, CPW1LINE, RWG_TEmn, COAX, and COAXC transmission line and coupled transmission line elements support synthesis of physical parameters based on electrical specifications using the Transmission Line Calculator. To open the Transmission Line Calculator, right-click the transmission line element in the schematic and choose Synthesize.
