The TH72016 transmitter works in virtually any FSK, ASK, or FM system in the 380 to 450 MHz unlicensed Industrial-Scientific-Medical (ISM) and Short-Range-Devices (SRD) frequency bands. Its extended operating temperature range of -40 to +125C and clock output to drive a microcontroller make it ideal for automotive applications such as Tire Pressure Monitoring Sytems (TPMS) or Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) that require enhanced data timing. The TH72016 comes in a space-saving 10-pin Quad Flat No-lead (QFN) package with a footprint of only 3 × 3 mm. The TH72016 IC accepts battery voltages from 1.9 to 5.5V. Power consumption ranges from 3.5 to 12.8 mA depending on the frequency and power setting. In standby mode the current consumption is below 50 nA. The programmable RF transmit power range between -12 to 10 dBm allows the designer to adapt to his RF power requirements.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
