mstrips(er,Z)
% mstrips.m - microstrip synthesis (calculates w/h from Z)
%
% Usage: u = mstrips(er,Z)
%
% er = relative permittivity of substrate
% Z  = desired characteristic impedance
%
% u = width-to-height ratio = w/h
%
% notes: can calculate a vector of u's from a vector of Z's
%
%        accuracy is better than 1% 
%
% see also mstripa for microstrip analysis
