I hope, that this small application will help for radioamateurs to calculate various inductors.
At last version Coil32 v are available:
 Number of turns calculation under given inductance
 Inductance of coil calculation under given number of turns and coil design sizes
 Qfactor of air core onelayer coil inductance estimation
 Inductance of multilayer coil estimate by it resistance to DC
 Estimate length of wire, that necessary to wind a onelayer coil inductance
 Estimate length of wire, that necessary to wind a multilayer coil inductance
 Estimate length of wire, that necessary to wind coil on a ferrite ring
This software allows to calculate the following kinds
of coils:
In all variants, that are below, it's possible to calculate number of turns if inductance is known or inductance if number of turns is known
 RF air core inductor as single turn loop
 Single layer closewinding air core solenoid
Before calculation in initial parameters you can choose two variants:
 Diameter of a core and diameter of a wire are fixed, the length of winding
is in passing defined.
 Diameter of a core and length of winding are fixed, diameter of a wire is in passing
defined.
 Single layer RF solenoid with winding pitch
 Single layer RF solenoid with pitch, but not the circular shape turns
 Multilayer air core coil inductance
Before calculation in initial parameters you can choose two variants:
 Length, thickness of winding and diameter of wire are known. Number of turns is calculating, the thickness of the coil, its ohmic resistance to a DC and approximate length of a wire for winding (how much it is necessary to cut off) is in passing estimated.
 Diameter of a core, length of winding and limiting ohmic resistance of the
coil are known. The number of turns is calculating, a thickness of the coil,
the necessary minimum diameter of a wire and approximate length of a wire
for winding is in passing estimated.
 Toroidal air core onelayer coil inductance
 Coil or choke on a ferrite ring
 Coil or choke in the pot core (ferrite or powder iron)
 The planar coil
(Flat coil on PCB with spiral round and square form of turns and as a single straight conductor)
About Coil32 in detail ...
Often enough the radioamateur have a question: "
How to make coil inductance and calculate number of turns?".
Coil inductors are using and in HAM radio frequency equipment, and at construction of loudspeaker systems, and even looking at the computer motherboard, you and there find out the inductive elements. By Coil32 application it is possible quickly to compute inductance of coil. In the program the most widespread variants geometries of coils are considered. It is possible to calculate air core coil in the form of a single loop, air core solenoid with different variants of winding, choke on ferrite rings and in pot cores, and also the flat printing coil with the round and square form of turns. For the calculated coil it is possible to calculate condenser capacitance at LC resonance.
In what of advantage of this software before analogues?

The program calculates inductance of many kinds of coil design. It is possible to select an optimal variant, to use available coilformer or recalculate any coil inductor to another dimensions
 Coil32 allows to compute Qfactor of RF single layer coils inductance approximately
 It's possible to estimate length of wire what needed to wind onelayer, multilayer coil and the coil on a ferrite ring

Results of all calculations are deduced in a common text box, from where they can be saved in a file. Further you can view them and not to recompute again. It is possible to open this file in "MS Word" and to print out.

For flat coil inductors on the PCB the program prompts the optimal sizes for achievement of the highest Qfactor.

In the Network often there are programs for calculation of coils inductance working under DOS, about advantages of the Windowsinterface, think, it is not necessary to speak.
 It is possible to develop additional plugins for the program to calculate different kind of coils and chokes.
 The program is free download
 Multilingual interface support
 Offline calculations with save of result
The program is portable and does not have installer.
To install program unpack zip archive to any folder and send link of "Coil32.exe" on your desktop.
If you wish to add to the program your own language, please translate himself the file "English.lng" in folder "Language" and save the target file in this folder with name  "Mylanguage.lng". This file with ".lng" extension is the simple textfile. Replace this extension to ".txt", translate it (only words after equal sign), and replace extension back to ".lng" In the next start of the program this language will be available in menu. To make available this file to another users you can send this file to the developer on Email coil32@yandex.ru and I will include it in a next version.
About all wishes and remarks the request to write
