AppCAD ... As Useful as Ever - RF Cafe Cool ProductWhile company branding and the user interface have changed over the years since AppCAD first appeared on the Hewlett Packard (HP) website, it is still as handy a desktop tool as ever. The most recent incarnation was provided by Avago Technologies, which bought Broadcom in 2015 and then adopted its name. You can now download a free copy of AppCAD from the Broadcom website. Rather than do an extensive write-up about all the calculation screens in AppCAD, I've posted a sampling of screen shots. Amongst them are a Smith chart s-parameter plotter, a lumped element balun designer, a microstrip calculator, a mixer spurious product calculator, and thermal dissipation calculator. Since according to a popular saying a picture reportedly paints a thousand words, here are a few thousand words for you - in picture format.
