       transcalc — analysis and synthesis tool for microwave and RF transmsision lines


       transcalc [-h/--help]  [-v/--version]


       transcalc  is  an  analysis and synthesis tool for calculating the electrical and physical
       properties of different kinds of RF and microwave transmission lines.

       Transcalc allows you to interactively edit substrate, component, physical  and  electrical
       parameters  of  a given transmission line. For each type of transmission line, using entry
       boxes, you can  enter  values  for  the  various  parameters,  and  either  calculate  its
       electrical  properties  (press  Analyze  button  or  function  key  F3),  or use the given
       electrical requirements to sythesize (press Synthesize button or function key F4) physical
       parameters of the required transmission line.

       When  run  for  the  first  time  Transcalc       creates a .transcalc directory under the
       user's home directory, where some configuration information is stored. Transcalc remembers
       the  last  transmission  line  parameters  used  when  the  user  exits and presents those
       parameters when restarted.

       Calculated results are updated and presented within the user interface. Moving  the  mouse
       over  the  parameter  labels  pops  up  a  more  helpful tooltip about that parameter. For
       example, if you wonder what "Er" stands for, move the mouse over it and a helpful  tooltip
       tells you that it stands for relative permittivity.

       Transcalc knows and converts between many unit types for length, frequency, resistance and
       angles. Default units can be saved by using the  File->Options  menu.  Calculated  results
       include conductor and dielectric losses in decibels (dB).


       Transcalc has few command line options at this point.

       -v, --version
                 Causes transcalc  to print its version number (a string on the form MAJOR.MINOR,
                 like 0.10) to the standard  output,  and then exit.
