    Antenna Radiation Patterns Explained

    Hi, Been struggling to find information that I find to be obviously missing on how to interpret antenna radiation patterns. For example have a look in the datasheet for my chip antenna. I can understand the three 2D radiation pattern graphs, one for each plane, what I don't understand is what...

    Understanding Networking Protocol.

    Hi , I'm using cc1350 hardware amd transmit packets with mode 1 (legacy mode) that on the receiver side over mode 1 (legacy mode) I get wrong decryption of the received packet. over DSSS=8 I must get and see the patterns 11001100 or 00110011 according to TI handbook's table found above the...

    T.I. BLE USB MCU Programming Trouble (CC2540)

    Hello Everybody! I am trying to program/communicate with the CC2450 BLE IC, which is a transceiver/microcontroller. My computer is having trouble recognizing the device. It does not show up in Device Manager. I've tried the T.I. tools for trying to communicate with it. I've downloaded the BLE...

    Modding wireless RF headphones to Bluetooth headphones

    Hi guys, I have been using a pair of Sennheiser headphones for quite some time now (HDR 118). They offer good sound and sit comfortably, however they do work based on RF signals (863 - 865 MHz) and have been catching a lot of interference as of late. Instead of just getting a new pair of...

    Wireless RF Relay Project: 12 Fish Feeders, Low DC Voltage Circuits

    Hi Everyone, Project Goal: Feed my fish! Tidy up and get rid of conduit and wires running eveywhere! Current Setup: I have 12 Fish Feeders powered by a DC motor, and I run all the wires run along the walls in conduit back to the controller. Each color represents one fish tank. ("1-4" feeder...

    How to implement my control system on my dsPIC33EV 5V CAN -LIN Starter kit (dsPIC33EV256GM106)

    Hello everyone, So I have been working on a wireless charger for EV applications. The prototype I designed uses a control system to manage the voltage at the exit of the charger. Without going too deep, we can just assume the charger is a source supplying a square signal of 15 Volts of 150kHz...

    Feedback on 2.4GHz Circuit

    Hi, So this is a project that's on its second iteration, having trusted the previous PCB designer and ending up with some expensive PCB-shaped coasters, have learned quite a bit myself and also asked for help from another more experienced engineer. Looking for some feedback on this RF feedline...

    Antenna Tuning for non 50 Ohm Match

    I've designed a matching network for a PCB Loop Antenna and I've tried to match it to a source of 465 Ohm impedance with 1pF parasitic capacitance i.e. Source Impedance = (166 -j223) Ohm Ideal Load Impedance = (166 + j223) Ohm. I've used Tapped Capacitor Matching network as suggested in this...

    Cat tracking collar

    Hi, I'm trying to build a radio beacon that would be mounted on a cat collar. The goal is to get the distance of the cat - every 10 seconds. - for ≈ a month - with a ≈ 30 metters range detection - through walls - can fit on a cat collar (battery + electrical components) Would it be possible...

    proximity sensor 2 meters

    Hi, can anyone help me with ideas on building devices that produce an audible signal when come close to each other, say 2 meters or less. Both devices continue signalling until they are two or more meters apart. Think about a microphone moved close to a speaker - you hear an unpleasant...

    Use a pressure switch to activate a light wirelessly o ask if anyone can

    I have limited electrical knowledge so would like to ask if anyone can recommend a solution to a system I would like to have installed. I can have an electrician install it but as it is my concept I would like to identify the best way to configure it. We use HP air for testing at work and as a...
