Abstract


This paper describes a software package for the design, analysis, and simulation of microwave radio systems. This article is mainly directed to engineering education. The software can also be used to aid in the Hybrid Microwave Integrated Circuit Design needs in industry. Different Design procedures for various types of microwave circuit are used. Special emphasis is given in the progressive use of simulation techniques to stimulate learner activity and overcome some difficulties inherent to the experimental subject and theoretical results. The developed tool has been used in the Microwave Circuits discipline for the graduation course in electric engineering of the University of Brasilia, Brazil.
