DRM Receiver Upgrade


DRM Receiver Upgrade
The DRM Receiver described in the March 2004 issue of Elektor Electronics has proved very popular and many thousand of the receivers are already in the field. Its excellent design is both simple and inexpensive. In the best tradition of homebrew construction we have supported the receiver by publishing two add-ons to the basic design; an automatic preselector (11/04) and an automatic gain control (2/06).

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
