  • Basically you want to create a non-inductive 50-ohm load.

    The Great Amateur

  • Link Microtek has expanded its portfolio of Lynx non-ITAR components with a range of low-cost 50-ohm coaxial attenuators covering the frequency range DC to

    Electronicstalk - electronics industry news

  • While the vast majority of arbitrary/function generators provide a maximum of 10 V p-p amplitude into 50-ohm loads, a number of applications - particularly in automotive and power electronics design - require higher amplitudes.

    The Gadgeteer

  • So, the signal was split in two, connected to both inputs of an AND gate, producing an identical logic signal with the necessary buffering to drive the 50-ohm device.

  • There are also three resistors, two 50-ohm and one 100-ohm, which are used when driving a red LED, or blue or green, respectively.

    Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories

  • And while the tuner is presenting a nonreactive 50-ohm load to the transmitter, it is also presenting a nonreactive source of some other value for a nonreactive antenna system. News

  • And even the value, 2.5: 1, is meaningless if you're using a 50-ohm SWR meter in a system where impedances could be anything but 50 ohms. News

  • Tom is right, the tuner presents a 50-ohm nonreactive load to your transmitter, and if you placed the SWR meter between the radio and the tuner you would find that it will read very close to 1: 1. News
