Microwave circuit masks are made using high precision equipment which often is not absolutely essential. In fact, line width corresponding to a given impedance and line length corresponding to fractions of wavelengths are determined with an accuracy which is far lower than that of the apparatus used to produce the masks. From this standpoint, a computer and its graphical peripherals (cathode tracer COM 330) allow these difficulties to be overcome and a full scale to be produced directly on 35 mm film. These considerations are the basis of this study, including: the production and control of the definition tests, the trace program versus user data, applications and examples, and visualization.
