AUTOMATIC VOLUME/GAIN CONTROL
A circuit used to limit variations in the output signal strength of a receiver .
A reverse breakdown effect in diodes that occurs at reverse voltages beyond 5
volts. The released electrons are accelerated by the electric field, which results in a release of more electrons in a chain or "avalanche" effect .
(1) The peak power value averaged over the pulse-repetition time . (2) Output power of a transmitter as measured from the start of one pulse to the start of the next pulse .
The average of all the instantaneous values of one-half cycle of alternating
The standards adopted in the United States for the measurement of wire sizes .
A straight line, either real or imaginary, passing through a body around which the body revolves
Angular measurement in the horizontal plane in a clockwise direction .
The larger resistance value observed when you are checking the resistance of a
A waveguide arrangement that resembles a T and uses crystals for coupling the
output to a balanced transformer .
BALANCED PHASE DETECTOR
A circuit that controls the oscillator frequency (afc) .
