Hi, The calculation of switch-on processes according to Laplace often involves the problem of transforming back into the time domain. The inverse Lapace transformation is almost impossible to sol... Read more »

Phil - SAV551


January 27, 2021, 12:03 am

I built my triggered SAV-551 Colpitts oscillator, at 130 MHz. You recommeded using a gate resistor, so I used 4.7 ohms 0603 as a placeholder. Jitter was ghastly; the phemt was clearly oscillating ... Read more »
