Hi,
I am preparing for the Microwaves Circuits semester and I am reviewing Smith Chart usage, so I was looking at the book by Chris Bowick  RF Circuit Design where there is an impedance matching example at page 90. It can be seen here.
For this match, the Smith Chart plot is represented in figure 444 also available here (I attach it as PDF also).
In the example solution, the author says:
"... The only way we can get from the impedance at point A to the impedance at point C and still fulfill this requirement is along the path shown in Fig. 444. ..."
So the author says that the only way to accomplish the matching is using a shunt capacitor and then a series inductor.
But as I know, the match could be also be accomplished using shunt inductor and a series capacitor.
In fact, looking at the plot, it seems it can be accomplished using the inverse path.
Why do the author says that the represented on figure 444 is the only way ?
Thank you in advance.
