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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Memory effects :) - 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. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. 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.

This question is for all of you:
To which extent those of you who deal with circuit design remember
the entire theory related to what you do? :roll:
- Do you use
(of course) CAD tools and remember the theory basics?
- Do you constantly
keep refreshing your memory by reading text books and application notes?
- Do you only take off the rust from your brain when you enter into
new project design and concentrate just in the part you have to design?
- Any other option?
I am asking that because I keep refreshing
my memory over things I already know and I forget them because I don't
practice them too often. :shock: I am asking myself, if my brain is
OK or everybody else do the same? :idea:
After all RF design is an
ocean-wide area...to which level do you remember things? Formulas, concepts
Before you hold an interview what do you do, how
do you get ready for that? :idea:
