New RF-Toolbox update available – Happy Thanksgiving!

This RF-Toolbox update 6.08.01 includes the following changes and additions:

  • Resistor/Capacitor/Inductor combinations tool

This tool helps to create a certain value by calculating various combinations of serial or parallel connected components. This is especially useful if you can’t find a component with a certain value in your shack or if you need to create a value outside the E-Series standard.

  • 4-20mA conversion tool

This new tool converts values based on the instrumentation systems 4-20mA DC standard.

  • Negative value entering

For some input fields it was not possible yet to enter negative values. Now, the special keyboard has received a minus sign in the top bar.

  • Support for oz/ft² (Copper Plating Weight in oz)

Especially for the PCB trace calculation, thickness can now be entered in oz/ft² .

  • Calculator degree / radian support

The trigonometric functions like sin() and cos() can now calculate in radians and degrees and there is a new button which can be used to switch between these two. However, the degree button ° can still be used to convert values from degree to radians, thus when set to radians and calculating sin(45°) results in the same value as if the calculation is set to degree and entering sin(45) .
