Yagi Calculator is a science application that targets designers of Yagi antennas, being capable of performing calculations for a given model automatically, based on the parameters defined by the user.
Engineers have a hard time designing antenna prototypes using traditional methods, compromising on productivity and efficiency a whole lot.
With the aid of an application such as Yagi Calculator, results are delivered automatically, the only necessary effort being the input of various dimensions and specifications that are characteristic to this type of antenna.
Yagi Calculator is characterized by a basic and simple appearance, which is not uncommon for this type of software. Developers of such applications often make a compromise on looks, but compensate through functionality.
The design of a new antenna can start right away using the dedicated menu; once you select the antenna model, set the frequency, diameter, dipole gap, number of directors, boom type, as well details related to the construction of the reflector and dipole, you may press the ‘Calculate’ button.
The results are displayed in a separate window, with the possibility to export them to an output file or to send them to the print queue.
Also included in the application are a set of utilities that can assist engineers in various calculations, such as the gain or the stacking of an antenna, as well as its impedance or SWR factor.
In a nutshell, Yagi Calculator can play a major role for engineers, telecom designers, students, teachers and even for hobbyists, delivering accurate results in a fast manner.
