We present a reliable and fast workflow for comprehensive joint numerical study of 7T transmit-only, receive-only RF coils as complete devices. The flexibility of the workflow allows inclusion of almost all the RF and DC components used for tune/de-tune/match/decoupling. The S-parameter data and B1+ and B1- profiles obtained for a family of loop-based 8-channel TX-only, 8-channel RX-only coils allow estimation of the required impedance of de-tuning circuits.
