    Kirt Blattenberger,


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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Where to get old MicroSim software (used to be free)? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio

-- Antennas

-- CAE, CAD, & Software

-- Circuits & Components

-- Employment & Interviews

-- Systems

-- Test & Measurement

Anybody know where to get the old free version of MicroSim? It used to be a download (many years ago) on their website (Interface Technologies) but not any more. I think is had a limitation of about 25 or 50 nodes, but was quite nice for quick calculations, and it did not expire after 30 days so you could keep it forever. Thanks.

You are looking for PSpice which used to be owned by MicroSim. It belongs to Cadence now (which I view as a bad thing). You can google for PSpice and find lots of links. Or, you can go here and down load a couple of the older versions of the demo/student version. I didn't try to download so I don't know if the links work.
