  1. TNT is the graphical front end supporting 2-D electromagnetic field
  2. solvers developed at the Mayo Special Purpose Processor Development
  3. Group (Mayo SPPDG). These field solvers can compute per-unit-length
  4. electrical characteristics from two dimensional descriptions of
  5. transmission lines.
  6. Mayo SPPDG has been implementing and using a variety of
  7. electromagnetic modeling tools since the mid-1980s in support of its
  8. primary research mission: developing next generation electronics
  9. technology for high speed signal processor applications. The
  10. Mayo-developed applications have been known as the "MMTL"
  11. applications, for Multilayer Multiconductor Transmission Line analysis
  12. tools. For more information about Mayo SPPDG, visit
  14. TNT is primarily a Tcl/Tk script application, and requires Tcl, Tk,
  15. Incr Tcl, IWidgets, and BWidget packages. These packages are freely
  16. available, and the source code can be downloaded from
  17.,, and
  18. Or you can download and install a
  19. free binary distribution of ActiveTcl which includes all these (and
  20. many other) packages from
  21. TNT and MMTL field solver programs are available on the web. See:
