We will demonstrate a CAD program designed for the lay out and analysis of microstrip circuits. The program runs on the IBM PC or AT. Circuit elements are selected from a parts list and drawn on the screen using the cursor keys. The analysis may then be performed, directly from the screen drawing. Puff has been used by microwave students in classes at the California Institute of Technology and the University of California at Los Angeles.
