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...

Need formula for percent bandwidth. - 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.

I need the formula to calculate percent of bandwidth, as in "60 GHz, +/-5%." Can someone help?

Hi jstover,

If we assume that there is a given center frequency called fc and we need to know the ranges we need to measure around fc in percentage, we can use the following formula to find the lower(fl) and higher(fh) frequencies which the percentage will allow.

fl=fc*(1-%/100)

fh=fc*(1-%/100)

So, if we assume that fc=60GHz and there is a +/- 5% bandwidth around this, then we can find:

fl=60GHz*(1-5/100)=57GHz

fh=60GHz*(1+5/100)=63GHz

I hope this is what you were asking for and that it helps you out.

-J

Thanks for your response. Somehow, I remembered it as being more complex than simple percentage math.
