IC-7000 with SDR panadapter

Our buffer interface named IFace can be used to add an SDR panadapter to the glorious Icom IC-7000.

The operations to be performed are very simple, it is sufficient to obtain from its wiring diagram the information on the points where to take the IF signals.

This radio, in fact, uses different mixers. In particular, we will have to use the first of the RX chain. The following images show the block diagram of the radio. For the IC-7000 the first IF is at 124.487 MHz.

We now proceed to identify the exact points on the printed circuit board where to take the IF signal to be sent to the IFace. The following images show the sampling point for the IF signal and for the power supply for the buffer interface.

The use of PTT signal is not required.

In order to purchase an IFace use the button below.

ATTENTION: Though installing the IFace is not difficult, you do this at your own risk. TSP S.r.l. is not responsible for any damage, unwanted side-effects or whatever.

ICOM IC-775/775DSP SDR!

Our friend Luigi IV3XNF sent us some pictures of the installation of our universal SDR interface IFace inside the great ICOM IC-775DSP. This is a very powerful testimonial and we like to share it to thank Pellegrino.
In this way, using an external SDR receiver and its software you can take advantage of all the advanced features of the SDR technology and improve the performance of any radio!

This image shows just how our IFace works: it is used to take the IF signal from the radio and send it, properly processed, to the external receiver: this creates a real SDR panadapter.

And if it works with an IC-775… it works with any radio!

The installation is very easy, the instructions can be found here, and from the following images, you can see result of the installation made by IU8JAD.

If you’d like to buy an IFace please use the following button. A shopping cart will appear and you will be able to proceed with the order.

If you want to find out for which other radios the installation instructions are already available, go to this page.

If you do not know which SDR receiver to use and you want an advice, please note that all our tests were carried out using one of the receivers shown in this article: click here.

Impariamo a programmare Arduino

Capita spesso di ricevere richieste di aiuto per la realizzazione di progetti basati su Ardunino®. Si parla di progetti e non di solo programma perché il più delle volte un circuito è sbagliato ed è quindi normale che il firmware poi non riesca ad assolvere al compito richiesto.

E’ fondamentale capire che si tratta di progettazione hardware e software/firmware integrata, non si può fare l’una senza avere in mente anche l’altra.

Quindi conoscere l’elettronica è prerequisito indispensabile per poter effettuare una corretta programmazione di qualsiasi microcontrollore. Perché di questo si tratta, Arduino® alla fine è poco più di un semplice microcontrollore montato su di un circuito stampato. Di per sé dispone già di diverse periferiche all’interno del package, ma se non viene opportunamente interfacciato al mondo esterno i malfunzionamenti sono garantiti.

Concordiamo con te che non sia facile, soprattutto all’inizio, e sai cosa? Le persone che si sono fidate di noi oggi hanno risolto i loro problemi, hanno avuto successo realizzando finalmente i loro progetti!

Per questo, per poterti aiutare, ti chiediamo di indicarci quali sono le tue necessità e quali sono gli ostacoli che non ti consentono di effettuare con successo la realizzazione dei tuoi progetti. In cambio avrai degli articoli e/o dei mini video corsi gratuiti.

Ad esempio, se non riesci a variare la velocità di un motore DC, spiegaci brevemente quale è la tua idea/necessità, quali sono gli strumenti che stai cercando di utilizzare e quali sono gli ostacoli che ti bloccano.

Utilizza il form seguente per inviarci la tua richiesta. Inserire nome e email è fondamentale perché altrimenti non potremo avvisarti una volta soddisfatta la tua richiesta.

I tuoi dati sono al sicuro, per saperne di più leggi la nostra politica sulla privacy.

Audio Video Corsi

I nostri videcorsi di elettronica ora possono essere fruiti anche tramite podcast/streaming audio.

Abbiamo deciso di offrire questa possibilità gratuitamente a tutti coloro che acquistano o hanno acquistato la versione video del corso. E’ un modo questo per agevolare lo studio utilizzando la tecnica dell’immersione.

E’ infatti dimostrato che un ascolto ripetuto e prolungato nel tempo, la cosiddetta immersione, aiuta ad instaurare nella nostra mente i concetti in modo più efficace e duraturo.

E’ quindi nostra volontà favorire in tutti i modi possibile l’apprendimento dei nostri studenti e il podcast/streaming audio sicuramente può essere un valido ausilio.

L’ascolto può essere fatto anche su dispositivi mobili collegati ad Internet, ad esempio mentre si è alla guida o a fare una passeggiata o mentre siete in ufficio e state svolgendo il vostro lavoro.

Ovviamente da computer potrete continuare a fruire delle lezioni video e delle slides, non cambia nulla.

Le immagini a seguire mostrano ciò che troverete una volta acquistato il corso ed effettuato il login.

La barra orizzontale di colore azzurro rappresenta il player audio. La trovate sotto ogni singola lezione così da essere facilmente individuabile. Ovviamente il player audio non avvia quello video e viceversa.
Sotto ogni video trovate il corrispondente player audio.
Sotto tutti i video e tutti i player audio continuerete a trovare le slides del corso: queste potrete scaricarle e stamparle così da poterle usare per prendere appunti e migliorare l’apprendimento.
