Colpitts harmonic oscillator 100Mhz
L1C1 are selected to be resonant at a frequency below the desired crystal harmonic but above the crystal"s next lower odd harmonic. C2 should have a value of 30-70 pF, independent of the oscillation frequency. There is no requirement for any specific ratio of C1/C2, but practical harmonic circuits seem to work best when Cl is approximately 1-3...
High frequency signal generator
A tapped-coil Colpitis oscillator is used at Ql to provide four tuning ranges from 1.7 to 3.131Hz, 3.0 to 5.6 MHz, 5.0 to 12 MHz and 11.5 to 31 MHz. A Zener diode (D2) is used at Ql to lower the operating voltage of the oscillator. A small value capacitor is used at C5 to ensure light coupling to the tuned circuit. Q2 is a source-follower buffer...

A Colpitts VCO for Wideband (0.952.15 GHz)
Modern set-top DBS TV tuners require high performance, broadband voltage control oscillator (VCO) designs at a competitive cost.To meet these goals, design engineers are challenged to create high performance, low-cost VCOs.
Colpitts oscillator for the UHF range
Simplified circuit diagram of the two-stage Colpitts oscillator. In comparison with the classical single-transistor Colpitts oscillator [1,2,5] the two-stage modification includes an extra transistor Q2 and an extra capacitor C3. We note that both transistors, Q1 and Q2 in respect of AC signals are in a common-base configuration.
Colpitts oscillator FM transmitter
Its frequency depends on the capacitance of the vary cap diode. The center frequency is changed by varying the biasing voltage of the vary cap through the 47K pot. You can use a 75cm telescopic antenna or simply a length of hook-up wire. Mine worked fine with a 6cm hook-up wire and gave a range of 100m with a good FM receiver.

The high performance of modern set-top DBS TV tuners require broadband voltage control oscillator (VCO) designs at a competitive cost. To realize these goals, design engineers are challenged to create high performance, low-cost VCOs. The traditional design of Colpitts oscillator is used for many VCO applications.

Simple 50 to 300 MHz Colpitts Oscillator
Simple high efficiency Colpitts oscillator. In the higher frequency ranges, above 50 MHz, Colpitts oscillators are used because stray circuit capacitance will be in parallel with desired feedback capacitance and not cause undesirable spurious resonances that might occur with the tapped coil Hartley design. The FM VCO shown is a grounded base desig

An op-amp based Colpitts oscillator in multisim. When I press run button it shows- "timestep too smaall error". I`ve googled and tried everything but it still shows the error. Not sure where you got that design, but as drawn your C-L-C pi circuit is grounded (by an ideal ground, for purposes of simulation) at both ends, so it willhave absolutely...

Common Collector Colpitts Oscillator
Design a Colpitts Oscillator in a common collector configuration using a single BJT. Provide base current to get the transistor operating properly, and you can do this using a potential divider (between Vcc and gnd): use resistor values as high as possible (bearing in mind the loading effect of the base current) in order not to load the LC...

17 colpitts ham lesson
The oscillator model I talked about in the introduction to oscillators was as simple as it gets - capacitor + inductor. So I wanted to try to make my own oscillator. In a search for how to make an oscillator I got a website with a few different kinds. They look pretty simple schematically, but I like to know how the charge is travelling thro
Edwin Henry Colpitts was a communications pioneer best known for his invention of the Colpitts oscillator. As research branch chief for Western Electric in the early 1900s, he and scientists under his direction achieved significant advances in the development of oscillators and vacuum tube. An electronic oscillator is an electronic circuit that pr
Parallel fed Colpits oscillator circuit
It is parallel fed because the DC plate current does not flow through the inductor. R3 may be replaced by an RF choke if desired. C3 keeps B+ from appearing across the variable capacitor which is generally a no no. If R1 were not present, C3 might not charge up and there would be B+ on the variable capacitor anyway. R1 makes sure that the...

Questions about colpitts oscillator design
amplifier input and output impedance, load and source resistance are strongly mutually dependent in the CC circuit. That`s a reason, why "impedance matching" doesn`t achieve results representative for the circuit operation. Analyzing the circuit as CB with virtual ground, as suggested by LvW, gives a better decoupling of both amplifier ports. Impe

colpitts osc not working
I`m afraid the circuit you have there is nowhere near correct. For a start, there is no DC path to the transistor base, so no base bias current is available. Q1 collector and emitter are connected directly to the battery with no intervening impedance, so the transistor cannot deliver any useful output. Hmm. ok. so how do I figure out what R1, R2,

Fully automatic watering circuit for flower pots
Many times for various reasons we forget or can not water the plants that we have in our homes. And many humidity sensors units just notify us with a beeping sound or with a flashing light, that the pot needs watering. But what if we are away from home? This circuit comes as a solution to this problem. Depending on humidity of the pot at...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...

This Amplifier was designed to have the following specifications: Distortion less than 0.1% at full power of 100W even at 20KHz. Power has to be attributed to an extended bandwidth. The output transistors must be protected against short circuits. The power supply must be symmetrical so that no electrolytic capacitors are needed at the outlet....

Analogue Sound Preasure dB-Meter Circuit
The best human ear can capture sounds from 20Hz to 20KHz. These limits are known to be the broadest that can exist. Normally the normal limits range from 100Hz to about 13KHz and depend on the age and health of the individual. We for our measurements and to have a good accuracy we will get the limits of 20Hz to 20KHz. A sound to be heard does...
