Build the BASIC SPY TRANSMITTER - Page 1 of 16
Build the 2 transistor Spy Transmitter Radio frequency projects can seem more difficult than most electronics projects because most of the time you cannot build them on a solderless breadboard and there may be parts used that are not easy to source such as coils and adjustable capacitors. This project is focused towards those who have not yet attempted to build any kind of RF project, and it is laid out in such a way as to make it easy to explore the basic principles of RF circuitry and ensure a successful final product. This simple 2 transistor audio transmitter will send the sounds picked up in a room to any FM radio tuned to the same frequency as the transmitter, somewhere between 80 and 100 Megahertz. Figure 1 - You can salvage most of the parts needed from an old radio Since many of the parts only need to be "close enough", you will probably be able to salvage all that you need from any old radio, TV, or RF based circuit board.

Operational amplifier applications This article illustrates some typical applications of operational amplifiers. A simplified schematic notation is used, and the reader is reminded that many details such as device selection and power supply connections are not shown. Operational amplifiers are optimised for use with negative feedback, and this article discusses only negative-feedback applications. Practical considerations[edit] Op amp parameter requirements[edit] In order for a particular device to be used in an application, it must satisfy certain requirements. have large open-loop signal gain (voltage gain of 200,000 is obtained in early integrated circuit exemplars), andhave input impedance large with respect to values present in the feedback network. With these requirements satisfied, the op amp is considered ideal, and one can use the method of virtual ground to quickly and intuitively grasp the 'behavior' of any of the op amp circuits below. Component specification[edit] Input bias currents and input offset[edit] When

RF Communication Between Microcontrollers – Part I | eXtreme Electronics RF Communication Between Microcontrollers – Part I Jul 07, 2009 Avinash RF 28 In many situations a communication link between to devices becomes essential. This communication can be wired or wireless. IR Communications Used in IrDA, and Remote controls Short Range Requires two devices to be in line of sight. In this tutorial we will learn how to practically implement a wireless link between two MCUs. What is a RF Module ? A RF Module is a small circuit pre built and tested. As you can see they have very low pin count. TX Antenna Vcc (Positive Supply) DATA (Data Input) GND RX Antenna GND GND Vcc (Positive Supply) Vcc (Positive Supply) DATA DATA GND So you just need to apply power and fit an antenna and its ready to work.

Bipolar junction transistors as switches : Worksheet Question 1: Solid-state switching circuits usually keep their constituent transistors in one of two modes: cutoff or saturation. Explain what each of these terms means. "Cutoff" refers to that condition where a transistor is not conducting any collector current (it is fully off). "Saturation" means that condition where a transistor is conducting maximum collector current (fully on). Notes: In all fairness, not all transistor switching circuits operate between these two extreme states. Question 2: Explain the function of this light-switching circuit, tracing the directions of all currents when the switch closes: Notes: Ask your students to explain what possible purpose such a circuit could perform. Question 3: Trace the directions of all currents in this circuit, and determine which current is larger: the current through resistor R1 or the current through resistor R2, assuming equal resistor values. I'll let you determine the directions of all currents in this circuit! Question 4: Question 5:

Capacitor Voltage Change This curve fitted equation can then be used in LTSpice to model the Y5U capacitor, with its capacitance versus voltage relationship. To model a non-linear capacitance in LTSpice, it's necessary to write an equation relating charge (in Coulombs) versus bias voltage. This mathmatical relationship is written into the value of the capacitor (instead of so many uF or pF) as Q=f(x) where X is the pre-defined variable in LTspice representing the instantaneous voltage across the capacitor. More generally, the charge Q stored in a capacitor is: C(V) is the relationship between capacitance and applied voltage, in this case, as determined by our 7th order polynomial fitted to the measured C versus V data: In a theoretically perfect capacitor of constant value, of course, the relationship between charge and voltage is simple; Q=CV where Q is the charge in Coulombs, C is the capacitance in Farads and V is the voltage in Volts.
