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...

Founded in 1963 , BNC initially developed custom pulse generators. We became
known for meeting the most stringent requirements for high precision and stability,
and for producing instruments of unsurpassed reliability and performance. We continue
to maintain a leadership position as a developer of custom pulse, signal, light,
and function generators. Our designs incorporate the latest innovations in software
and hardware engineering, surface mount production, and automated testing procedures.
Our Model 625A function generator has been the recipient of several electronics
