I have spent some time, making a small program to view s-parameter files. Nothing big, but much faster than opening microwave office or ADS. Idea is to associate s2p files with the program, and simply open by double click on the files.

Status is, that beta release is ready, but since I lost my job, I have nobody to help me verifying, and don't really use it myself either.

Therefore I would appreciate if somebody could help me with some feedback. Could be like
- Reporting bugs
- Ideas for new features
- General feedback like. Don't bother to go any further, or when is the next release

The software come with a little presentation which can be seen on at the end of the pressentation, is a link for downloading software.

Thank you for your time

Nice program Orla. It looks very useful as-is now. Are there any other features you have planned, or will it remain just an s2p file viewer?

First thing is to know if it's stable, and able to run on different platforms. And to know that somebody will actually use it.

The math behind de-embedding is actually finished, but the user interface is tricky, and have lots of possible errors. I don't know how important it is.

Current version can only read Scattering parameters.

Another thing could be to implement VSWR and Polar plots.
