Investigation into Transmitter Power Control Improvements in the TB7300 Base
Tait base stations and repeaters are designed for mission-critical operation and engineered to provide unbeatable performance and reliability. On this project, you will work with experienced engineers to improve the transmitter power control accuracy of the TB7300 base station. Background We produce a range of base stations for analogue and digital Land Mobile Radio applications. There are several tiers of base stations in the Tait base station product family. The Tait TB7300 is our compact 1U, cost effective base station, offering multi-mode capability for a flexible communications platform, delivering 100% duty cycle at ambient temperature up to +60degC. The goal of this project is to improve the performance of the TB7300 transmitter power control to ensure that the base station will deliver more accurate power output under a range of extreme conditions. Your Project This is a hardware design project incorporating aspects of RF and Analogue circuit design. You will be required to analyse the current power control design in the TB7300 transmitter and explore a number of enhancements that could be made to improve the accuracy of the transmitter output power. This will be achieved through both measurement and simulation and will involve the use of RF test equipment, RF simulation tools, and PCB design packages. You will be required to prototype your design changes and test the performance to ensure it meets stringent RF compliance standards. The outcome from this project will be an improved power control design for the TB7300 transmitter that has been prototyped and proven suitable for implementing into production. This project would be ideally suited to someone with an interest in radio communications and RF hardware design. Some practical soldering and circuit prototyping background plus familiarity with the use of RF test equipment would be beneficial.
