RF calculators provide solutions to real-world industry challenges

September 10, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Pasternack Enterprises has created and published a set of RF calculators and conversion tools to assist engineers with answering complex RF-related product and design questions that arise on a daily basis.

A total of 27 RF calculators were developed by the engineering staff at Pasternack to provide the users and buyers of RF components a valuable and easy-to-use resource while in the planning or designing phases of their projects. The RF calculators and converters include link budget, coax impedance, RF power conversion (such as dBm to Watts), attenuation, frequency, wavelength, VSWR/return loss, torque, noise, Free Space Path Loss (FSPL), unit conversion, microstrip and many others. Each calculator page includes a diagram or illustrated depiction of what the calculator is used for as well as the mathematical formula for the chosen calculator.

Pasternack’s RF calculators contain another value-added feature that proves useful for engineers looking to take the results of their calculations to the next step of purchasing product that meets their requirements. In each of the product-oriented calculators, where applicable, the user plugs in the variables for their desired calculation and based on the result, the calculator will produce a “Find Related Products” button that directs the user to the company's products that meet his/her specific criteria. This innovative feature allows engineers and buyers to both research and purchase as needed from one location, preventing the hassle of going between numerous sites.
