The radiant crossed dipoles are driven in phase quadrature by diagonally positioning the feeding probe to obtain CP performance.
The two radiant crossed dipoles are driven in phase quadrature by diagonally positioning the feeding probe to obtain CP performance.
The 1st BioCD demonstration was related in structure to conventional optical compact discs, but rather than operating in digital mode, it was modified to operate in interferometric phase quadrature (3), in which the signal and reference beams have a 90[degrees] relative phase difference.
Two equal outputs from ports 3 and 4, but in phase quadrature.
Figure 6 shows the carrier suppression as a function of DC offset voltage where the phase quadrature error [beta] of the LO divider is a parameter between 1[degrees] and 10[degrees], and [alpha] = 1[degrees], [delta] = 1 dB and K = 1.
The diagram clearly illustrates that the voltage wave emerging from the input port will have zero amplitude (that is, be 180 [degrees] out of phase) as long as an equal power split exists between the direct and coupled ports with phase quadrature, resulting in a perfect input and output impedance match.
The LO circuitry in the model BF9957 IC is similar to the circuitry in the model RF9958 in that it uses a divide-by-two flip-flop architecture to achieve phase quadrature, implying that the LO frequency must be twice the IF to demodulate down to baseband properly.
The input to the mixers at pins 3 and 5 is mixed with an LO signal in phase quadrature applied at pins 12 and 14.
A state-variable oscillator topology guarantees better than [+ or -]3 [degrees] phase quadrature from 400 kHz to 22 MHz, spanning the common IFs of 455 kHz, 10.
Two AD831 mixers may have their RF inputs connected in parallel and have their LO inputs driven in phase quadrature, to provide demodulated in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) outputs, as shown in Figure 2.
and where the two outputs are in phase quadrature for all frequencies.
Secondly, it is assumed that the correlated phase noise at the phase detector will cancel because the phase detector responds to the difference in phase between the two input signals when the two inputs are nominally 90[degrees] out of the phase; this is referred to as phase quadrature.
