    Composite signal generation IC in DIFAR Sonobuoys

    Hi all I came to know about an old IC called probably "HE100" which was being used in DIFAR Sonobuoys for generation of composite signal. This IC takes 'Omni', 'Sin and Cosine Dipoles' signals as input and generates composite signals using internally generated 7.5 KHz and 15 KHz carriers. This...

    Hybrid vehicle IC engine.

    Hi, Have you ever tried to invent anything? Long ago, as a school boy after learning about internal combusion engines, I 'invented' a rotary engine. (It had actually been invented in the 19th century) My dad said "If Fords can't do then you can't" So I stopped. Years later I learned about...

    Energy transformations in an IC engine cylinder

    A drop of fuel is ignited in an engine cylinder, that produces heat, light and sound energies from the chemical energy stored in the drop of oil. What I am not clear about is how heat energy gets transformed into mechanical work? I think the heat energy produced from ignition flows from burnt...

    Are these internal combusion (IC) engine claims physically possible?

    For the most part, I ignore seeming cranks on other platforms, but the persistence - and insistence - of one who keeps claiming what looks to be physically impossible attributes of his ICE engine finally triggered my "Okay, I'll ask some experts." His written posts are along the lines of this...

    Signal Distribution ICs - 200-300V Input, Output Port Selection

    I'm looking for a class of IC's which takes a high voltage signal (200-300V) as input and then distribute it to one of the output ports I choose to use through the other input ports. It's awkward but I can't find anything out because I don't know which keywords I need to use.
