Abstract : The thesis discusses a computer program for the analysis and design of distributed-lumped circuits, including microwave integrated circuits. It is capable of frequency domain analysis, optimization of transducer power gain, reflection coefficient, and/or noise figure. Also, the program can compute the return difference with respect to any admittance parameter so that the stability of the circuit can be determined by the Nyquist criterion. The program handles complex impedances, resistors, capacitors, inductors, transmission lines, independent current sources and grounded voltage sources, voltage controlled current sources, and multiport elements, such as, transistors and circulators, described by their scattering or admittance parameters. It contains a free-format input. (Modified author abstract)
