A Major Step Forward in Organic Electronics

Major Step Forward in Organic Electronics - RF Cafe"Researchers have developed the world's first complementary electrochemical logic circuits that can function stably for long periods in water. This is a highly significant breakthrough in the development of bioelectronics. The first printable organic electrochemical transistors were presented by researchers at LiU as early as 2002, and research since then has progressed rapidly. Several organic electronic components, such as light-emitting diodes and electrochromic displays, are already commercially available. The dominating material used until now has been PEDOT:PSS, which is a p-type material, in which ..."

Effective Radiated Power

Effective Radiated Power, May 1973 Popular Electronics - RF CafeEIRP - effective isotropic radiated power - is an important parameter when calculating both intentional and unintentional electromagnetic emissions. EIRP is a vector quantity that accounts for both power (magnitude) and 3-dimensional coordinates (direction). It includes antenna directivity that concentrates power in a particular direction rather than distributing it equally in all directions (e.g., isotropically). Effective radiated power factors in modulation type and power envelope shape as well. Knowing how to measure that quantities can make the difference between ...

Gyroscopes Lead Scientists to Unusual State of Matter

Gyroscopes Lead Scientists to Unusual State of Matter in Disorganized Structure - RF Cafe"You don't have to be perfectly organized to pull off a wave, according to scientists. Using a set of gyroscopes linked together, physicists explored the behavior of a material whose structure is arranged randomly, instead of an orderly lattice. They found they could set off one-way ripples around the edges, much like spectators in a sports arena - a 'topological wave,' characteristic of a particularly unusual state of matter. Using a set of gyroscopes linked together, physicists explored the behavior of a material whose structure is arranged randomly, instead of an orderly lattice.

Crystal Filters

Crystal Filters, April 1969 Electronics World - RF CafeAs with most technologies that have been around for decades, the fundamentals of crystal filters have not changed with time. Materials and methods have changed, of course, but the equivalent lumped element model (using resistors, capacitors and inductors) of a crystal filter is essentially the same today as it was in 1969 when this article appeared in Electronics World magazine. Open a first semester electronics circuits textbook and the chapter on crystals will look much like this piece by Mr. Robert Kent, of Damon Engineering. The use of crystal had a profound impact on filter design because their extremely high "Q" factors ...

Earthquake-Causing Meteor in Michigan Sky

Earthquake-Causing Meteor in Michigan Sky - RF Cafe"Residents of southeast Michigan were left a bit shaken Tuesday night after a big bright flash lit up the sky and the ground beneath them shook. A flying saucer? No. A shooting star? Not quite. The National Weather Service eventually solved the mystery, tweeting 'USGS confirms meteor occurred around 8:10 pm, causing a magnitude 2.0 earthquake.'" The science-challenged reporter (as are most) got the part about it not being a shooting star wrong, though. A 'shooting star' is a meteor, although it is not a star ...

Wartime Solder

Wartime Solder, September 1942, Radio-Craft - RF CafePrior to the big push for leadless solder in the 1990s, probably 99% or more of the solder used by industry, tradesmen, and hobbyists contained lead. The 60/40 Sn-Pb (and 63/47) alloy, both with and without a rosin or acid core, was used for electrical work, electronics, plumbing, copper guttering, radiators, and many mechanical assemblies made of steel, brass, copper, tin, etc. Between World War I, "The War to [Not] End All Wars," and World War II, the electronics industry exploded in growth. All realms of society and government became utterly dependent on products assembled using solder. Both tin and lead were abundantly available ...

Crystals for CB & Ham Communication

Crystals for CB & Ham Communication, March 1973 Popular Electronics - RF CafeAccording to author R.R. Freeland, manufacturing processes for radio-quality manmade crystals saw major improvements toward the end of World War II. At the time, the process was highly manual-intensive, as can be seen in this really nicely done 1940s video titled "Crystals Go to War." Prior to the use of crystals as frequency-determining devices, inductor-capacitor (LC) tank circuits were the dominant configuration. There were actually other frequency-determining schemes like spark gaps and even vibrating mechanical reeds. As you might guess, anything less than ...

Do you have any PCB prototype successes or disasters that you would care to share with the rest of us? Many of my friends are involved in designing silicon chips in the form of ASICs, ASSPs, and SoCs, so if you say 'prototyping' to them, it means something very different to someone who wishes to create a prototype of a design that will be realized on a printed circuit board (PCB). In this column, we will consider four of the things that you really should consider before prototyping PCB ..."

Atomic Radiation: Types & Relationships

Atomic Radiation: Types & Relationships, May 1969 Electronics World - RF CafeNuclear energy was a big topic in the 1960s and 1970s as it was believed to be the future of electrical power generation for the world (at least up until the 3 Mile Island and Chernobyl incidents occurred). Ships and submarines were being powered by reactors that allowed them to run for months at a time without refueling, atmospheric emissions were practically zero, and the fuel source was abundant (albeit not simple to obtain). Medical and space applications were increasingly dependent on a greater knowledge of radiation and its effects on humans, plants, animals, and electronics. Many people by that ...
