Pasternack offers RF calculators and conversion tools

September 9, 2014. Pasternack Enterprises Inc., a manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave products, has created and published a new 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 an and easy-to-use resource while in the planning or designing phases of their projects. The new RF calculators and converters include link budget, coax impedance, RF power conversion (such as dBm to W), attenuation, frequency, wavelength, VSWR/return loss, torque, noise, free space path loss (FSPL), unit conversion, and microstrip calculations. 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 new 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 users plug in the variables for their desired calculation, and based on the result, the calculator will produce a “Find Related Products” button that directs the users to Pasternack products that meet their specific criteria.

“Our new selection of RF calculators is a great complement to our growing 'Engineer Resource Center' on our website,” said John Farley, director of marketing at Pasternack. “We are continually growing our technical resource library to further position Pasternack as the industry leader in RF products and RF-related knowledge.”
