Direction Finder Circuits
Optical Direction Discriminator Circuit
The very simple circuit uses only two CD4001 packages, i.e., eight NOR gates and operates in the following way: Pulse streams are fed to an RS flip flop generating an output waveform wliich has a small or large duty cycle depending on the direction of rotation, The same input pulses are also fed to a NOR gate, which adds the two pulse trains. The rising edges of this waveform are used to...

Two Homing type Direction-Finding
The antenna is simply a pair of vertical dipoles. The diodes in each dipole allows the circuit to select which antenna is active at any given time. When a positive voltage is sent up the coax feedline, diode D1 will conduct and D2 will block, making the left antenna active and disabling the right antenna. A negative voltage will cause D2 to conduc
Radio Direction Finder
The HANDI-Finder ® is a HANdheld DIrection Finder which can be used to localize both AM and FM carrier-based sources using a single connection to the antenna input of an FM receiver tuned to the frequency of interest in the range of 45 to 450 MHz. It has been designed for bare-bone functionality as well as low power consumption, simplicity, and ec
Digital Compass Module HMC6352
From Figure 1, the host microprocessor (uP) controls the HMC6352 via I2C serial data interface lines for data (SDA) and clock (SCL). Two external 10k-ohm pull-up resistors to the nominal 3 volt DC supply create normally high logic states when the interface lines are not in use. The host initiates use of the interface by creating the 100kHz clock a
sound origin direction finder
A sound origin direction indicator comprising a flat square-shaped form having four sound transducer/amplifier units mounted at its four corners, four rows of solid state lamps radiating from its center to the corners and an electronics system attached to the transducers and lamps to operate the device. It has now been found that, with the proper
direction detector decoder
This circuit, which was developed to monitor the traffic of bumblebees in and out of the hive, differentiates a-to-b motion from b-to-b motion. When used with an optical decoder, the circuit distinguishes clockwise from counterclockwise rotation and provides a resolution of one output pulse per quadrature cycle. Q1 and Q2 are mounted so that a mov
single chip circuit delivers direction information encoders
The LED phototransistor light gate should be mounted about 1 to 2cm apart, in some kind of rigid housing. We mounted it on a piece of brass attached to the circuit board. The housing also needs to be able to fit the compass inside, and also not obscure the view of the needle, as you will need to be able to watch the compass while you are setting i
navigator 555a radio direction finder rdf circuit diagram
This GPS receiver is powered by 2 AA batteries. They are only strong enough for the GPS to stay on for about two hours, and this seems like quite a waste. I would like to be able to use a larger battery, and sometimes even an AC adapter.
My GPS LCD Display Project
This is a project that I started back late 2003 when I just starting to learn PIC programming. I wanted to building something that actually did somthing useful. This project is based on a PIC16F84. I actually came up with this idea and then after doing some searching I found that a few people had the same idea. But, I wanted to build my own that I could call mine, developed by me.
Digital Compass for PC
The digital navigation PC board may be configured for a number of navigation functions, see figure 1. It may be made into a simple visual digital compass, or a microcontroller based compass. The microcontroller based compass can be used for mobile robotics or a PC based compass. The sensor used on the PC Board is the 1490 digital compass manufactured by Robson Company, see figure 2. This sensor...
1.575 GHz GPS WITH µPC8211TK, µPC8215TU, & µPC8226TK
The µPC8211TK, µPC8215TU, and µPC8226TK are silicon germanium (SiGe) microwave monolithic integrated circuits (MMIC) designed as low noise, high-gain amplifiers for GPS and mobile communications. These ICs are manufactured using our 50 GHz fmax UHS2 (Ultra High Speed Process) SiGe bipolar process. The use of these three devices in evaluation boards implementing LNAs (Low Noise Amplifiers) at...
Diagram description GPS support kit
The GPS interface can be fed in 2 ways: with a stabilized 5V supply or with a 10 to 25V unregulated DC supply. In both cases the power is fed into the RJ45 connector on point 8. Pin 7 is DC ground. The power supply current is first secured with a slow 315mA fuse (in socket). Then there is a Transzorb device to ground. This device is a short-circuit for reverse polarity voltages and for...
Electronic LED compass
This is a compass circuit based at AT90S2313. The output drives 8 LEDs to indicate the different horizon directions.
A GPS-Based Frequency Standard
Frequency accuracy has been a topic of special interest to many amateurs and experimenters since the early days of radio. Until recently, the best frequency standard available to most hams was a crystal oscillator carefully adjusted to zero-beat with a station of known frequency, such as WWV.
Inertial-navigation system uses silicon sensors
A strap-down inertial-navigation system uses silicon sensors to measure displacement without entailing the bulk and expense of moving parts or GPS receivers. For example, a three-axis accelerometer and three angular-rate sensors can determine the position and velocity of a vehicle such as a robot or radio-controlled aircraft.
Variable GPS Jammer
A low cost device to temporarily disable the reception of the civilian coarse acquisition (C/A) code used for the standard positioning service (SPS) on the Global Positioning System (GPS/NAVSTAR) L1 frequency of 1575.42 MHz. This is accomplished by transmitting a narrowband Gaussian noise signal, with a deviation of +/- 1.023 MHz, on the L1 GPS frequency itself. This technique is a little more...
Low-Power IC Packs GPS Receivers
This highly integrated GPS receiver IC improves upon earlier-generation devices by including more components in a smaller package with a reduction in power consumption.
How to Construct a Cable for Garmin GPS receivers
Some Garmin GPS receivers are capable of running off external power ranging up to +32VDC or more, whereas others can only accept a maximum of +8VDC.
Bidirectional Photoelectric System
Detects and counts inputs and outputs. Photoelectric detectors are usually unidirectional, i.e. they are able to detect when someone enters a particular area but not when leaves it. On the contrary, a system able to detect movement in both directions could be useful to control shops, rooms etc. If installed in a shop it could allow to know if all customers entering the premises have left them...
