The amplifier, the circuit of which is shown below, is designed to operate in the frequency band 1-5 and 6-12 television channels. The last stage of the amplifier is an emitter follower that matches the amplifier with a low cable impedance (75 ohms).

Since when operating in the VHF range, repeaters are prone to self-excitation, their input circuit includes antiparasitic active resistance (R15), which can be calculated using the formula R = 2 p faLin, where fa is the limiting frequency of the transistor gain (for transistors fa is usually given in reference books );

Lin - inductance of the coil at the input of the repeater. The winding data of the amplifier coils are shown below. All coils are wound on frames with a diameter of 7,5 mm with cores SCR-1 turn to turn with a PEV wire of 0,15 mm.

Coil number L1 L2 L3 L4 L5 L6 L7 L8 L9 L10
Number of turns 2,5 3 2 2,5 2 2 2,5 2 2,5 2

When setting up an amplifier, it should be borne in mind that the rotation of the cores of coils with odd numbers on the circuit will change the shape of the amplitude-frequency characteristic in the frequency range of 175-230 MHz, and the rotation of the cores of coils with even numbers will change the shape of the characteristic in the frequency range of 50-100 MHz.

The amplifier is tuned using any VHF standard signal generator that has a frequency range in which the amplifier should operate. As an output indicator, a voltmeter with a high-resistance input is used, which allows measuring alternating voltage with a frequency of up to 250 MHz. The tuning is carried out in the usual manner, that is, by changing the position of the cores of the coils, they achieve that the shape of the amplitude-frequency characteristic of the amplifier differs as little as possible from that shown in Fig. 2.

The amplifier is designed to connect to TVs with a sensitivity of 200-500 microvolts.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

Petgugu Global cat litter 15.04.2024

Taking care of pets can often be a challenge, especially when it comes to keeping your home clean. A new interesting solution from the Petgugu Global startup has been presented, which will make life easier for cat owners and help them keep their home perfectly clean and tidy. Startup Petgugu Global has unveiled a unique cat toilet that can automatically flush feces, keeping your home clean and fresh. This innovative device is equipped with various smart sensors that monitor your pet's toilet activity and activate to automatically clean after use. The device connects to the sewer system and ensures efficient waste removal without the need for intervention from the owner. Additionally, the toilet has a large flushable storage capacity, making it ideal for multi-cat households. The Petgugu cat litter bowl is designed for use with water-soluble litters and offers a range of additional ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

DDR3L-1333 and DDR3L-1600 memory modules from Silicon Power 06.11.2013

SP/Silicon Power announced the release of DDR3L-1333 and DDR3L-1600 memory modules operating at 1,35 V. This voltage is lower than the 1,5 V voltage used by DDR3 modules, resulting in lower power consumption and heat dissipation.

At the same time, UDIMM and SO-DIMM modules are presented, designed for desktop and mobile systems, respectively.

Modules are available in 2, 4 and 8 GB. DDR3L-1333 modules work with CAS 9 latency, DDR3L-1600 modules - CAS 11.
The manufacturer notes compatibility with fourth-generation Intel Core processors (Haswell) and careful selection of components used in the modules.

Modules are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
