Salut is a small program that performs
calculations on simple networks around two-port devices (like
s-parameters, at radio frequencies.
The main advantage over many other simple microwave/rf simulation
programs is that it has the possibility to model components in series
with a two-port block. This is interesting since some reactance to
will always be present in every application. Salut is also not
restricted to the usual common emitter or common source configuration
even though many semiconductor manufacturers only provide s-parameters
With Salut, it is easy to look for negative resistances in oscillator
Salut is a command line only program, written in C to run under
If someone prefers to use it in a less flexible environment it should
be very easy to port.
Documentation is included as a README-file in the tarball.
There are also some examples available of
how to use the program.
