The electronic knee is composed or ah antenna, transducers, and a microtransmitter
that transmit force measurements into a computer-readable format.
Made by Breitling (Grenchen, Switzerland), this fully operational chronograph incorporates an emergency microtransmitter
Nasdaq:ATML) announced today the availability of a UHF RF wireless on/off key transceiver chip set based on Atmel's AT86RF401 Smart RF microtransmitter and its T5744 receiver.
Jim Goings, Atmel's Smart RF Marketing and Applications Manager, pointed out, "The AT86RF401 Smart RF microtransmitter has a relatively unknown but powerful design attribute that allows its interrupt-based bit timer to encode serial data on the RF carrier during transmission as well as decode demodulated serial data from the receiver.
The objectives of our study were to test and evaluate the efficacy of the combination of techniques reviewed above to study the behavioral ecology of refuged lizards, specifically 1) internal radio microtransmitters, 2) articulating borescope, 3) thermocouple attached to the borescope to measure body temperature, and 4) remote interrogation of implanted PIT tags.
Because this study was of short duration and designed to test various field techniques used to study lizards that refuge into rock cracks and crevices, we force fed 2-g radio microtransmitters into subjects (Santoyo-Brito and Fox, 2012) instead of surgically implanting them.
