Program Name: MWI
Function: Microstrip and Stripline transmission line and coupler design
License type: Freeware
Description: This great little calculator program from Rogers Corp will:
calculate Zo (characteristic impedance) of Microstrip, stripline, and Offset Stripline (Asymetric Stripline)
Design couplers in stripline.
Since MWI works for asymetric stripline, it is the most capable free package for digital PCB transmission line design.
The user interface is very efficient, but it doesn't have the familiar Windows look and feel.
Rogers corp is in the business of making PCB substrates for microwave circuits, so some of the jargon used
may be new to high speed digital designers.
