Formulas and Calculations

This Tech. Note covers frequently used conversion factors, how they are derived, and why they are used. If you need to convert from one series of units to another for any reason, this is the tech. note for you.

Formulas and Calculations

Here is a calculation tool to help determining the actual field strength or power density at a given distance.

Formulas and Calculations

Here is a handy page to convert units from dBm to Volts to Watts based on a 50 ohm system.

Formulas and Calculations

Have a gain value but need the Antenna Factor? or the other way around? This calculator will calculate the Antenna Factor(dB/m), gain(dBi), and gain (Numeric) values.

Formulas and Calculations

This tool will calculate the maximum coverage that the antenna will cover from a specified distance and antenna's half-power beamwidth.

Formulas and Calculations

Below is a calculation tool to help determine the received field strength (in V/M or dBµV/m) and convert that result into power density (µW/m^{2}, mW/m^{2}, W/m^{2}, or µW/cm^{2} ).

Formulas and Calculations

This tool that will calculate the near-field and far-field distances based on the antenna dimension and wavelength.

Formulas and Calculations

Would you like to estimate the attenuation between two antennas? Use this tool to calculate the theoretical free-space path loss by entering the distance, frequency, and antenna gains.

Formulas and Calculations

Here is a little handy calculator that can calculate the wavelength of a frequency or frequency of a wavelength in several different units. This calculator is useful for calculating the required antenna element length of a dipole or rod antenna for the frequency of interest.

Formulas and Calculations

This VSWR calculator will calculate return loss, mismatch loss, loss in percentage and the reflection coefficient. As an added bonus, the results are modifiable and can calculate the other values. In order to improve the VSWR, this calculator also has an extra input for adding an attenuator to improve or reduce the system VSWR
