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...

AWR Press Release - January 24, 2011
Media Alert: AWR's Dr. John Dunn Authors Guest Column for RF GlobalNet
on “Electromagnetic Simulation:
Tips, Tricks, & Tradeoffs”
El Segundo, CA – January 24, 2011
What: AWR® Corporation's Dr. John Dunn will contribute regularly to a guest column series for
VertMarkets, Inc.'s RF GlobalNet on “Electromagnetic (EM) Simulation: Tips, Tricks & Tradeoffs.” The first article
will launch on January 25th and is titled, “The Trouble with EM Is That It Always Gives an Answer.” This aim of
the series is to discuss the issues that today's design engineers face while using EM simulation tools and to
provide useful and practical advice, tips and tactics that improve design accuracy and turn-around times whether
the EM tool user is a novice, casual and/or power user.
In 2010, Dr. Dunn authored
“Understanding Grounding Concepts in EM Simulators” that was published on RF GlobalNet, and went on to become
the 4th most popular article on
RF GlobalNets Top 10 in 2010.
Dr. Dunn is a recognized expert in electromagnetic modeling and
simulation for high-speed circuit applications. Before joining AWR, he was head of the Interconnect Modeling Group
at Tektronix and earlier was a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Colorado, where he led a
research group in electromagnetic simulation and modeling. Dr. Dunn received his BA degree in physics from
Carleton College and his MS and PhD degrees in applied physics from Harvard University.
