From page 3-13 of the data sheet you can glean that the front panel inputs have a programmable termination of 50 Ω to ground, which can be used or not. They also have programmable voltage threshold, so if you want to drive at less than 5 V, you may. For the lowest drive strength requirement from you box, use a series 50 Ω output impedance, to an unterminated ...

A balloon that the device under test can be secured to or held against. The balloon can be pulsed at a frequency of choice using perhaps a linear actuator or motor to hit the balloon with a “hammer” or something similar.

It looks like the video is showing a configuration where the emitter of an NPN transistor is grounded, and the transistor turn on when a positive base voltage is applied. The TTL book you mentioned is probably talking about an open emitter configuration, with the emitter being the input and the base connected to a positive supply voltage, through a resistor. ...

I realize this circuit requires a VR pickup sensor, and so the LM2907/LM2917 must rely on triggering off of zero-crossings. The data sheet tells you that a zero cross does not trigger anything: - You need to exceed a positive threshold and then return back below a negative threshold or it won't register anything - this is to avoid noise triggering causing ...

Use this kind of RC circuit. The op amp in this circuit is the internal op amp of your tachometer IC. The RC network will change your 0-5V signal to a -2.5V to 2.5V signal. R1 should be around 10k, C1 should be selected such that the RC time constant is much (at least 5 times) greater than the time period of the square wave which you are expecting.

The data sheet for the TACH chip that you linked makes it very clear how the inputs operate. See this: 9.3 Feature Description 9.3.1 Differential Input This device features a Schmitt-Trigger comparator that is the first stage in converting the input signal. Every time the output of the comparator flips between high and low correlates to a half cycle elapsing ...

This Tachometer IC uses any repetitive to make edge-triggered fixed pulse width using a Schmitt comparator and a one-shot. If you have a unipolar logic level pulse, then the comparator needs a reference Vdc with a resistor divider to the Vin midpoint voltage or 2.5V in your case using 2 equal large R values with a small filter cap. Alternatively Vin- = gnd , ...

I'm looking for guidelines like "don't connect a pin of type A to a pin of type B without a gate of type G in between", or "be sure to add resistors/caps here and here", or "power up this pin/chip before this other pin/chip" or "use a such-and-such circuit to condition the power" ... These "tips" are instructions given in the data sheet and developer's ...
