MacTXLine calculates parameters for transmission lines in electromagnetic systems. It support 3 different lines: Microstrip, Striplines and Coaxial lines.

The application converts between electrical values and physical values. As an example it can convert a length in degrees to a length in mm or convert characteristic impedance in Ohms to width in mm. Also it calculates loss/attenuation of transmission lines.

The user can select between different pre-progammed conductors and dielectrical materials, or she can put in parameters for other materials of her own.
