Taper Synthesis

For a transformer synthesis, the user can choose between a built-in taper assistant or a taper VBA template. The first userform contains the specification of the filter.

As the result of the Taper Assistant a complete schematics is generated automatically. This includes the setup of the variables including extensions. In some cases a short post optimization is required because µWave Wizard takes higher order modes into account while the synthesis is based on a fundamental mode connection. All input values of the Taper Assistant are saved in a *.fsf file. This file can be reloaded and modified to different specifications again. As a result a second taper can be generated based on a previous design.
