Pegasus Tech Menu:
Award-Winning Design Experience
Our staff members
have designed a wide variety of awarding winning electronic and RF products over a combined total of more than 130 years of professional
experience. Applications have included work on cyclotrons, medical devices, thermometers, strain gauges and other machinery monitoring
tools, digital video and audio systems, remote machinery / device control systems, search and rescue systems, and more. We have
experience over a wide range of frequencies and different modulation techniques including Zigbee, UWB, Bluetooth, and CDMA, to name
just a few, using a variety of RF chips and microcontrollers. A few examples include:
PT-Series Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum Transceiver Modules
Over the past several years, Pegasus Technologies has designed a number of different transceiver modules using embedded
microcontrollers and customizable firmware. Many of these modules
are FCC certified /approved for EU use, and are available in several different frequencies and ranges of output
power. We pay particular attention in our module designs to small size, low power usage, and versatility
for application to a wide variety of different products. See our RF Products page or
Contact Jim Pearce at (865) 717-9339 for more information and pricing.
Spread Spectrum Digital Audio Systems
Projects have included HF and VHF voice transceivers; a high-quality stereo audio broadcast system,
and work on high-end microphones. Technical challenges have included small size, long battery life,
innovative proprietary sound enhancement techniques, cost considerations, and high performance in
a variety of non-standard environments.
High-Power RF Amplifiers
Pegasus staff has significant experience in the design of such amplifiers for both
scientific and communication use, in devices ranging from ham radios to cyclotrons.
Scientific domestic animal and wildlife tracking / monitoring systems
Projects have ranged from cattle eartags that provide permanent, positive ID and health status, to implantable transmitters /
receivers used for tracking fish movement.
RF / Wireless Machinery Monitoring / Control Systems
We have designed a variety of such systems, ranging from simple thermometers and strain / vibration monitors,
through wireless door locks and aircraft emergency lighting systems, to high-frequency cyclotron controllers and
other complex machinery monitoring systems
for monitoring and controlling multi-factor performance in hard-to-reach locations and extreme environments.
Our experience is all-inclusive, including design of sensors, transceivers, communications protocols,
microcontroller firmware, and operator interface software that go to make up such systems.
