Hi there! You must be looking to upgrade your engineering electronics lab with the latest and greatest test equipment on the market today. Well good news...this is the place to be! Cool engineers only please...meaning all of you.
Poor manufacturing environments can significantly reduce the performance quality of a pressure transducer. A failing pressure transducer will lead to problems with sensors and will provide inaccurate readings (or none at all).
A faulty pressure transducer not only can cause frustration and wasted time, but can also lead to unnecessary costs.
To prevent pressure transducer problems or failure from happening in the first place, let's take a look at 7 pressure transducer troubleshooting methods to keep your transducers & sensors working great!

Drones...Drones...Drones... It's almost like everywhere you go these days you can't help but be sucked into "drone chat".
We've been doing a lot of talk about the new space movement and the newest LEO constellation innovations. It's about time that we bring to your attention that LEO constellatioins aren't the only innovation when it comes to the new space (or space 2.0) movement. As technology and payloads of satellites continue to skyrocket (ha!), so does our ability to efficiently explore the deep, dark depths of outer space.
Bliley Technologies has been recognized in the frequency control industry as one of the premier suppliers for high quality OCXOs for over 85 Years. Bliley has been moving up the value chain from an RF system perspective. Within the last year, Bliley has developed a commercial LEO solution to provide a master reference oscillator which provides the functionality of a PLL and OCXO from the GPSDO design and is currently in production.
Can you hear that?! ...Listen closely. Can you hear it now??

Activity dips, also referred to as frequency perturbations, can be difficult to spot in oscillating crystals. However, a single activity dip can cause major problems in an application’s signal, including within GPS or missile systems. Imagine launching a missile and then losing control of its navigation. Or getting a very inaccurate GPS velocity reading of an aircraft. These (and many other problems) can be caused by a failure to spot frequency dips in crystals. It’s important to understand what activity dips are and how to avoid them from occurring in crystals...and that's exactly what you're going to learn right now!
TCXO Performance Qualities
A standard TCXO has quite a few performance qualities. Some of the most common performance figures are summarized below:
The international space station (ISS) is traveling in orbit around our earth at about 217 Miles (350 km) above earth’s surface. That’s equal to about 1,148,294 feet (yes, over 1 MILLION feet) or 350,000 meters above you. Those are some crazy heights! The ISS and other satellite communication devices must be able to cover a ton of earth’s surface from there, right?
Maybe. Maybe not. Let’s explore...
