Crystek's CVCO55FLM VCOs (Voltage
Controlled Oscillators) contain an extra modulation port
(TX modulation) for transmitter applications. The modulation port has a
negative slope and a typical modulation sensitivity of -20KHz/V.
from 172 to 210 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.2
to 4.8V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -119 dBc/Hz @ 10KHz
offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is
typically 0 dBm.
Model CVCO55FLM-0172-0210 is packaged in the
industry-standard 0.5 x 0.5 in. SMD
package. Input voltage is 3V, with a max. current consumption of 9 mA. Pulling
and Pushing are minimized to 1.0 MHz and 0.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second
harmonic suppression is -20 dBc typical.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
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.
