VSWR | Return Loss | Reflection Coefficient Conversion Calculator

VSWR Mismatch Errors - RF CafeThis Javascript calculator converts between return loss (RL), voltage standing wave ration (VSWR), and reflection coefficient (Γ).

It also calculates the amplitude and phase error created by imperfect impedances. Two VSWR values are taken as input.

Finally, VSWR improvement due to attenuation is calculated.

Numerical inputs are not error trapped. Absolute values of inputs are used for calculation.

Calculated values do not change until the "Calculate" button is clicked.
