Hundreds of microwave acronyms are explained in our acronym dictionary, and in some cases are linked to other Microwaves101 pages for further reading. How's our driving? Drop us a line if anything is missing, confusing or incorrect!

Check out our politically incorrect companion page on microwave slang!

Here's a page on Greek letter usage in microwave engineering!

Note to users: these acronyms are ones that we see commonly used in microwave engineering, including integrated circuit processing. We don't want this list to become too big to handle, so we will leave out all of the obnoxious government acronyms you might encounter, like HERF (hazards of electromagnetic radiation to fuels). The U.S. Government has many web sites that will help you decode their verbal junkyard. The Association of Old Crows (an electronic warfare organization with a tres cool name) has an extensive list of military acronyms for example.

Second note to users: the overuse of acronyms in presentations is related to inferiority complex. Dumb people use tons of acronyms without writing out the definition, so that smart people in the audience will be forced to ask, "Herr Dummkopf, what does KFC mean?" Always spell out acronyms the first time you present them, or you will come off as a jerk. BTW, KFC means greasy fried chicken...
