Pulse Position Modulator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Pulse Position Modulator

Pulse position modulator can be easily built using 555 IC. Here is the schematic diagram of the circuit: Pulse position modulator modulate the on-period while keeping the fixed off-period. Pulse position modulation might substitute pulse-width modulation in some application. The main difference between pulse position modulation (PPM)  and pulse width… Read more »

Superlinear FM (Frequency Modulator)

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Superlinear FM (Frequency Modulator)

Designing various electronic circuit system (synthesizer, modem, decoder, data converter, etc) of ten need a frequency modulator subsystem. An FM modulator is very easy to build with TC9400 since the it has very good linearity as V/F converter. Here is the system’s block diagram: While Vin determines the amount of… Read more »

TC9400 Wide Frequency Range Pulse Generator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on TC9400 Wide Frequency Range Pulse Generator

The reason why TC9400 V/F converter is very useful in the laboratory are because it’s portable, battery-operated, and low cost frequency source. Both pulse and square-wave outputs are provided by the TC9400. A triangular waveform can also be generated by adding an op-amp integrator. The outputs can be frequency-modulated via… Read more »

30-Khz Bandwidth High Linearity Opto-Isolated Amplifier

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 30-Khz Bandwidth High Linearity Opto-Isolated Amplifier

Using optocoupler to directly transfer a linear (analog) voltage would produce  a large unpredictable linearity error, which is also sensitive to temperature changes. By using frequency modulation, the total system’s linearity will  depend only on the linearity of the V/F and F/V converter, which is fortunately cancel each other if… Read more »

LT1016 – LS74121 Voltage Controlled Pulse Width Generator/ Monostable Multivibrator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on LT1016 – LS74121 Voltage Controlled Pulse Width Generator/ Monostable Multivibrator

Monostable multivibrator poduces a fixed pulse width when receiving a trigger signal on its input. The pulse width of the output is fixed regardless of the input pulse duration/width. In practical application, the width of the output pulse is determined by choosing the right components values for certain application. With… Read more »
