Hello,

does it make sense to visualize S21 in a Smith-Chart ? What would be your reference impedance ?

Not really.. If there is gain you wont see anything unless you have an expanded smith chart. If you want a visual aid for S21, a polar chart is the way to go.

Hi :

Yes, I agree with the previous post.
just want to add that, smith chart is limited to Magnitude 1. While at most cases, |S21| >1.
That's why, it can't be seen in the smith chart unless you expand it.

Regards,
Jean
