### Finding the Analog Bandwidth of a Voltage Controlled Oscillator

We've built a current starved voltage controlled oscillator And tuned it so it works only in the linear region, which means it oscillations between 720-840 mV, and outputs 3.6-4.4 GHz. In order to ...

### Square wave spectrum and knee frequency

There is this rule of thumb to estimate the required bandwidth of a digital signal by its rise time: $$\text{f}_{\text{knee}} = \frac{0.5}{\text{t}_{rise}}$$ This knee frequency is described in "...

### Is there a configuration where a circuit acts as Bandpass filter in one direction and Bandstop in other?

I am not an expert in electronics. Hence, I am looking for a broad conceptual answer. Is it possible to a directional Bandpass/Bandstop filter i.e. Bandpass in one port and Bandstop in another.

### Convering bandwidth (frequency) to bit rate without knowledge of the modulation?

How would i convert a bandwidth of say 30kHz to bps if I only know the number of bits per sample (4)? (and I was using a two chanel system). I am assuming it is simply 30KHz * 2 * 4 but this may be ...
