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 ...

Toroids: Powdered Iron

Use the table below to calculate inductance and number of turns per the following formulas.




Toroidal inductor equation formula
Where:
L = inductance in µH
AL = µ
H per 100 turns
N = number of full turns
