Overview

With the help of this sure-fire instruction guide, you can learn how to build a sophisticated, yet low-cost microprocessor-controlled radio transceiver as well as smaller devices such as a simple frequency synthesizer and a spectrum analyzer.

Filled with tested, hands-on projects that really work, this great reference features single-sided circuit boards that are easy to build, and includes detailed circuit-board layouts and extensive parts lists.

"Build Your Own Intelligent Amateur Radio Transceiver" will enable you to:

Interface digital and analog circuitry

Keep digital switching noise out of sensitive analog circuits

Interface a microcontroller to various input/output devices

Perform assembly programming of the Intel 80c31 microcontroller

Anticipate the real-world behavior of RF circuits

Fully grasp circuit-board fabrication

Understand frequency synthesis techniques used in modern radio equipment

It's all here in one unique resource-- everything you need to create a state-of-the-art radio transceiver with top-notch performance!
