What is it?
Mex-Wcalc refers to the Matlab MEX interface to the Wcalc routines. This interface allows the user to apply the full power of a high level programming language like Matlab to the design and analysis of the various Wcalc supported structures. For example, it is extremely simple to plot the Q and self resonant frequency of a 220 nH inductor as a function of winding diameter or to optimize the impedance of a microstrip line to produce minimum loss. For quick calculations with only a few sets of parameters, the standalone GTK-Wcalc is a simpler tool, but when complex optimizations or plotting is desired, the Matlab interface provides tremendous flexibility.
Accessing Mex-Wcalc (After Installation)
the Matlab MEX interface,
the mex-wcalc directory must be in your Matlab search path.
This is done by executing the following command at the Matlab
Accessing Mex-Wcalc (Before Installation)
If you want to try out Mex-Wcalc before it is installed in its
final location, execute the following command at the Matlab
Running the Mex-Wcalc Functions
Once the Mex-Wcalc path has been added, the Mex-Wcalc
functions appear in the same way as other Matlab toolbox
documentation on the various functions is available via Matlab's
online help. For a list of functions enter the following at the
Currently available functions
