This is my first post on this forum. I am building a 16Mhz radio for my senior design project and Have a few questions. I have been working in PSPICE and am ready to start building and testing.
1)What kind of capacitors should I use in my tuned amplifiers, oscillators, and filters? I have been looking online and there are so many to choose from. I think I should be using something with a small temp coefficient but what material should I use etc..
2)Does anyone know of a place online with low shipping costs and a good selection of components? I have been looking at mouser it seems to be pretty good any other suggestions?
3)In my transmit oscillator I am using an NFET to switch in and out a cap. I am having a difficult time trying to Find one in a TO-92 package with a good enough Ft. Does anyone know where I could go to get this? or perhaps suggest a better device for me to use than an NFET.
thank you for taking the time to read and answer my questions.
