Follow an expert in computational electromagnetics to write your own program in MATLAB that can calculate the properties of a high-frequency transmission line using a simple finite-difference method. This video series will analyze a microstrip transmission line and a differential pair. Visualize the field and predict transmission line properties such as distributed capacitance, distributed inductance and characteristic impedance. Accelerate your career by developing your own tool that can analyze any type of transmission line including balanced and unbalanced.
