Birdcage coils are the most commonly used-volume coils in MRI for their ability to provide homogeneous circularly polarized fields inside their volume with a quadrature channel excitation. One of the most used tools by RF coils designers is BirdcageBuilder, a software which provides the values of the capacitors needed to make the coil able to resonate. In this work we extend the functionality and portability of the software by designing a version which can run on common mobile devices for easy access anywhere coils are constructed, and provide all resonant frequencies of the coil as designed.
