User's Guide

 


NOTICE: RF Cascade Workbook 2018™ replaces the 2003 version and adds a lot of functionality. Therefore, RF Cascade Workbook 2003 will no longer be offered for sale. All of the original information is retained here for reference.

RF Cascade Workbook 2003 incorporates many features requested by users over the last year. While automated program features and multi page displays are useful, it seems most users would rather have the convenience and ease of all input and output cells being on a single worksheet, and have most of the formulas in a VBA routine to maintain uncluttered cells and simple manipulation. Another concern is the rather large size of the basic workbook, since every system saved creates a file the size of the entire workbook.

Here is brief list of changes for RF Cascade Workbook 2003:
  • All input/output cells located on a single worksheet (makes inserting/deleting rows simpler)
  • Removed pop-up calculators since they just make the workbook larger
  • Put the vast majority of cell formulas in VBA code for easy manipulation
  • Added the ability to specify individual device IP2 and IP3 as input or output referenced
  • Provided a User's Guide, and eliminated the online help for a smaller workbook file size
  • Put device tolerance and Min/Max cells next to Nominal parameters
  • Modified formulas to reflect gain min/max values in addition to device min/max variations
  • Added a minimum system SNR value for use in calculating dynamic range
  • Employed Excel's outline feature to easily show/hide Min/Max values
  • Reduced the number of default graphs (smaller workbook file size)
  • Reduced the overall file size to under 200 kBytes
  • Added AC/DC power budget worksheet

All of the formulas used in RF Cascade Workbook 2003 are presented in the illustrated User's Guide to assist in understanding the operation of the spreadsheet. Most calculations are implemented in VBA code, which makes customization more convenient and keeps clutter out of the cells. This is especially helpful in the case of conditional formulas. Expansion of the workbook to include custom calculations is a simple matter.
