Posted on Friday, September 21st, 2012 in documentation, RF, tools by the machinegeek


If you need to do RF related computations on a regular basis, now there’s an app for that! Freescale has released their FREE RF Engineering Tools App V1.0. “The RF Engineering Tools app is a compilation of calculators and converters that can assist the typical RF designer, university student, professor and other members of the RF community in the execution of a variety of design and analysis activities. The calculator list includes a PCB microstrip impedance calculator and both cascaded third-order intercept point and cascaded noise figure analyses of multi-stage RF designs calculators. The converter list includes a common length conversion tool, a dBm-to-watts/watts-to-dBm tool and a polar-to-rectangular/rectangular-to-polar converter.”

The Apple version is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch (3rd-generation), iPod Touch (4th-generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.2.5 or later and can be found on their app store. The Android version is compatible with all Android 2.2+ OS phones and can be found on Google play.

    1. Personally I hate Apple – so no iThing for me…

    2. My Android thing is BLOCKED from Google play – so no Frescale app for me…

    3. No PC (Win or xBSD/Linux) “app” equivalent for Freescale RF Engineering Tools…

    Fail…

    For the rest of you Elites sucking on the poisonous Google and/or Apple nipple – Enjoy!

    For Freescale – bad move.

    The Freescale app isn’t anything to brag about, I actually think the ones from Agilent (PCBCalc and µWave Calc) are faster and have more functionality with a better user interface. Also, have a look at an app called “RF Slide Charts 5.0”, this one is a gem when it comes to RF.

    Regarding your Apple and Google comments; haters gonna hate. Use whatever resources are available to you.
