Slide Rule app for mobile devices


Back in May, we announced the launch of our redesigned website, http://mdllab.com. Along with visual enhancements, the site also offers a comprehensive search tool and online Slide Rule. We are excited to announce that this Slide Rule is now available for download to your mobile device!

Now available for download to iOS and Android devices, the Slide Rule mobile app enables design engineers to input their own waveguide rectangular (WR) designations to quickly perform complex conversions and determine operating parameters. By entering WR dimensions, a user can generate a range of material specifications including recommended operating frequency rate (GHz), flange type, and waveguide dimensions (in.).

Have questions about calculations or how to purchase components for your design application? Contact an MDL representative directly from the app, or tweet to us at @MDLlab.
