This chapter describes the construction of the basic coordinates of the SMITH CHART and then discusses some of the more important waveguide electrical parameters related thereto. All of these related parameters may be graphically portrayed as either radial or peripheral scales. The construction of the basic series impedance or parallel admittance coordinates of the SMITH CHART is shown.
