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

or mobile (some features are not accessible on mobile). Access is free, and you
can save and reload your design files rather than losing your work once you leave
the website. Being online also means that the latest version is always available.
The screenshot to the right illustrates where to place series and parallel components,
and where to access the sweep parameter settings. Be sure to scan through the FAQ
page for tips like setting the component up/down button value adjustments and turning
features on and off.
