DIY Signal Generation 12

Create a Signal Source for a Variety of RF Applications

Neal describes how he built an inexpensive and accurate variable-frequency signal generator on a two-sided PCB. The system delivers frequencies from 0 to 3 GHz with a frequency accuracy of less than 200 Hz.

Get Started with PIC USB Connectivity 24

You can add USB to your next project with Microchip Technology’s new array of parts. The 8-, 24-, and 32-bit microcontrollers will complement your designs with USB peripheral support, embedded hosting, and dual-role and OTG capabilities.

ABOVE THE GROUND PLANE - HT Audio, GPS for APRS, and What Works34

Several years ago, Ed built a system that enabled him to communicate with a fellow rider via an electret microphone connected to an amateur radio during bicycle rides. This month, he explains how he rebuilt the interface and combined it with a GPS tracking system.

SILICON UPDATE - Hot Enough for You? 78

As Tom explains, having all the MIPS and megahertz in the world means nothing unless your design has some meaningful real-world data to process. To gather such meaningful data, you need innovative sensors. This month, Tom introduces a handy option you should consider for your next temperature-sensing design—an infrared noncontact IC thermometer.
