Electrical / Electronics Conversions, Formulas & References

Electrical / Electronics Conversions Formulas & References - RF CafeThroughout the years as an engineer, I have needed to research topics on engineering, physics, chemistry, mechanics, mathematics, etc. The Internet has made the job infinitely simpler, with the caveat that you have to be careful of your sources. Anyone can post anything on the Internet without peer review, and errors are rampant. The topics listed below are primarily ones that I have researched and generated custom pages for the content. I welcome visitor review and comments on my material to help ensure accuracy.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
