RF board

The radio frequency (RF) Board contains the ultra high frequency (UHF) receivers, the transponder, the binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) telemetry modulator and the very high frequency (VHF) low power amplifier.

It also provides current and temperature data points for the CCT board over the I2C bus. The RF printed circuit board has now been laid out and all the required components have been obtained.

This picture shows one side of the board as it arrived from the manufacturers on November 1st 2010. The board is presently being populated.
