The input signal is provided by a tunable laser source (TLS) within wavelength band from 1550 nm to 1600 nm, power range from -30 to 0 dBm and at linewidth of 150 kHz.
The HMC8200 IF transmitter chip converts the industry standard 300 MHz to 400 MHz IF input signal to an 800 MHz to 4000 MHz single-ended RF signal at its output.
The MPC uses a 4~20mA or 0~10VDC input signal to automatically adjust the actuator stroke.
The TP-574 receiver then converts the input signal back to HDMI, RS-232, and IR signals.
Prisma II series boards scale the input signal to the appropriate TFT resolution as needed.
These signal conditioners offer isolation between the DC input signal and DC output, which can be used to prevent earth loops.
5-digit LCD readout displays either the percentage of flow rate in the manual position or the actual percentage of the selected input signal when controlled electronically.
Because ADCs are never used as the only element between the input signal and the digital output, this closer look begins by considering all of the elements in a data acquisition system.
Amplification--Amplifiers improve the accuracy and sensitivity of small signal measurements by boosting the amplitude of the input signal to better match the input voltage range of the digitizer, thereby increasing the resolution and sensitivity of the measurement.
Electrical noise is mostly symmetrical, which makes it easier to identify and separate from the sensor's input signal.
It becomes constructive then to revisit the concept of amplifier gain, because when an amplifier operates in compression the general assumption that the output signal is directly proportional to the input signal is no longer valid.
It provides wide input signal compatibility, accepting VGA, Super VGA, and noninterlace video input signals at a maximum resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels.
