Vox Voice Activation

- Is commonly used in radio communications in which push to talk (PTT) is either inconvenient or not practical, thus hands-free communication is required. VOX only transmits the microphone signal when it has been determined the user is talking.

Volatile Memory

- Memory which loses its data when power is removed. The RAM memory in the Emulator II is volatile, the data on the hard disk is non volatile.  

Volatile Store

- Is a store holding data only while power is supplied  

Volt (Voltage)

- A potential due to an electric field. One volt is defined as the potential difference across a resistor that is passing one ampere and dissipating one watt. 1 V = 1 W/A.  


- Voltage seems very complicated but is very simple voltage is the flow of electrons

decibel voltage gain, measured voltage gain, predicted voltage gain, stiff voltage divider, stiff voltage source, voltage amplifier, voltage controlled device, Voltage Drop, voltage feedback, voltage follower, voltage gain, voltage regulator, voltage source, voltage switched lnb, voltage to current converter

Voltage Amplifier

- An amplifier that has its circuit values selected to produce a maximum voltage gain

inverting input

Voltage Controlled Device

- A device like a JFET or MOSFET whose output is controlled by an input voltage  

Voltage Drop

- Voltage measured across resistors  

Voltage Feedback

- This is a type of feedback where the feedback signal is proportional to the output voltage  

Voltage Follower

- An op-amp circuit that uses non inverting voltage feedback. The circuit has a very high input impedance, a very low output impedance, and a voltage gain of 1. It is ideal for use as a buffer amplifier.  

Voltage Gain

- This is defined as the output voltage divided by the input voltage. Its value indicates how much the signal is amplified.

buffer amplifier, compensating capacitor, decibel voltage gain, frequency response, loop gain, measured voltage gain, midband, miller`s theorem, mixer, op amp, overloading, phase splitter, predicted voltage gain, reference voltage, resonant frequency, unity gain frequency, voltage follower

Voltage Regulator

- A device or circuit that holds the load voltage almost constant, even though the load current and source voltage are changing. Ideally, a voltage regulator is a stiff voltage source with an output or Thevenin resistance that approaches zero.

reference voltage, ripple rejection

Voltage Source

- Ideally, an energy source that produces a constant load voltage for any value of the load resistance. To a second approximation, it includes a small internal resistance in series with the source.

stiff voltage source, voltage regulator

Voltage Switched LNB

- An LNB that has a built in polarisation selector controlled by voltage level 13/18 volts from indoor unit


Voltage To Current Converter

- A circuit that is equivalent to a controlled current source. The input voltage controls the current. The current is then constant and independent of the load resistance.  


"Virtual Private Network"

- A network that appears to be "private" but in fact uses the a PTO`s public network to create a closed user group thereby providing the convenience of a private network without the infrastructure costs normally associated with ii
