  • Please see RF Cascade Workbook 2005 page before ordering (you might want it instead).
  • RF Cascade Workbook 2002 and RF Cascade Workbook 2004 may still be purchased if their formats are preferred, but the free upgrade to RFCW2005 DOES NOT apply.
  • NOTE: Macros only work in the desktop version of Excel. The online browser-based version does not yet support macros.
Using advanced features of MS Excel, extensive cascade analysis of RF component parameters is performed. Noise power analysis, min/max tolerances, complete graphing of all parameters, and auxiliary pop-up calculators makes RF Cascade Workbook 2002 a tool you cannot afford to be without. Drop down menu navigation and error trapping on all inputs enhances the interface.

New features:

  • This workbook is totally unlocked for easy access to formulas and VBA code
  • Up to 50 components allowed. Display or hide component rows in groups of 5 using the Setup page. Hidden components are still included in cascade calculations.
  • Graphs automatically display only only unhidden components.
  • "-User-" page for custom formula cells. Create formulas that reference any cell in the rest of the workbook using standard Excel functions.
  • Version 1.02c has had it's equation references modified to match those used in RF Cascade Workbook 2003. The changes are minor, but you might want the upgrade anyway.
  • If you purchase RFCW2002 new, the User's Manual for RFCW2003 will be included at no charge  (PDF format - no hard copy).
