FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. and HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y., Jan. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The new 2015 Tech-Select® version 8.0 Design Support Tool from American Technical Ceramics provides access to all radio frequency (RF) parameters as well as mechanical dimensions for ATC products. RF parameters include Smith charts, S- Parameters, RF current, RF voltage, Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), Quality Factor (Q), complex impedances and more. RF parameters are achieved at frequencies entered by the user. By selecting and sorting on the desired parameters, this program generates a complete list of product options with part numbers. Users may also view and print datasheets or individual performance curves for the selected products. Products displaying the QUIKBuy® logo may also be purchased by using Tech-Select's direct link to ATC's shopsite.
