I've found another nice transmission line calculator HP AppCAD, that's also
free. It's made by HP, but not the EEsof division.
I downloaded it from:
It has models for both conductor backed and non-conductor-backed CPW, as
well as a fairly large assortment of other transmission line types.
It also has an active circuit calculator. Worth checking out.
