9780071799706: Build Your Own Transistor Radios: A Hobbyist's Guide to High-Performance and Low-Powered Radio Circuits

A DIY guide to designing and building transistor radios

Create sophisticated transistor radios that are inexpensive yet highly efficient. Build Your Own Transistor Radios: A Hobbyist’s Guide to High-Performance and Low-Powered Radio Circuits offers complete projects with detailed schematics and insights on how the radios were designed. Learn how to choose components, construct the different types of radios, and troubleshoot your work. Digging deeper, this practical resource shows you how to engineer innovative devices by experimenting with and radically improving existing designs.

Build Your Own Transistor Radios covers:

  • Calibration tools and test generators
  • TRF, regenerative, and reflex radios
  • Basic and advanced superheterodyne radios
  • Coil-less and software-defined radios
  • Transistor and differential-pair oscillators
  • Filter and amplifier design techniques
  • Sampling theory and sampling mixers
  • In-phase, quadrature, and AM broadcast signals
  • Resonant, detector, and AVC circuits
  • Image rejection and noise analysis methods

This is the perfect guide for electronics hobbyists and students who want to delve deeper into the topic of radio.

L'autore:

Ronald Quan is a member of SMPTE, IEEE, and the AES. He worked on the design of wideband FM detectors for an HDTV tape recorder at Sony Corporation, and a twice-color subcarrier frequency (7.16 MHz) NTSC vector-scope for measuring differential phase and gain for Macrovision, where he was a Principal Engineer. Ronald currently holds at least 65 US patents in the areas of analog video processing, low noise audio and video amplifier design, low distortion voltage controlled amplifiers, wide band crystal VCOs, video monitors, audio and video IQ modulation, audio and video scrambling, bar code reader products, audio test equipment, and video copy protection.

Descrizione libro McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 228 x 184 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A do-it-yourself collection of innovative, high-quality projects for electronics enthusiasts Build Your Own Transistor Radios pushes the envelope of DIY radio designs. Ronald Quan, an electronics engineer with more than 65 patents, presents a range of projects, suitable for advanced beginners and more experienced engineers, that go far beyond the standard crystal sets of the past. This book covers traditional radios -- TRF (Tuned Radio Frequency), reflex, regenerative, and super-heterodyne topologies - as well as front-end circuit designs for SDR (Software Defined Radio), the emerging future standard for radio technology. Using widely available materials and the book s easy-to-follow plans, you can make radios that run for years on a single battery (even an organic potato battery or minimal solar cell array). Other projects include simple TRFs with enhanced reception performance; reflex radios that amplify both audio and radio frequency signals in a single unit; a green superheterodyne receiver, comparable in quality to commercially manufactured sets, but with vastly extended battery life; and other high-performance, low-power-consumption designs. Provides practical circuits for the hobbyist that use easily available off-the-shelf parts Bridges theoretical knowledge with intuitive explanations and practical examples Presents explanations of circuit designs and an introduction to signal theory--no advanced math training necessary! Gives alternative circuitry choices and recommended parts hacks Covers fundamental radio circuit design principles you can apply to other radio types, such as ham, shortwave, and longwave Comprehensive coverage: Overview of Various Radio Circuits; Calibration Tools and Generators for Testing; Parts and Improvised/Hacked Parts for Building the Radios; Building Simple Test Oscillators and Modulators; A Low Power TRF Radio; Reflex Radios; Low Power Regenerative Radios; Superhet Radios; A Low Power Superhet Radio; Exotic Superhet Radios; Inductorless Radios; Software Defined Radio Circuits; Oscillator Circuits; Mixer Circuits and Harmonic Mixers; Sampling Theory and Sampling Mixers; IQ Signals; IF Circuits; Detector/AVC Circuits; Amplifier Circuits; Resonant Circuits and Band Pass Filters; Image Rejection; Noise.
