Win a free MicroMax ST-1 stereo encoder...
Its been a while since we had a competition here.

This time you're competing for a brand-new RDS MAX 30 RDS encoder,
fully assembled, entirely free of charge including free air mail shipping.

http://www.pcs-electronics.com/rds-max-30-p-316.html

Technical specifications:
Requires DC stabilised voltage, 11-18V/0.1A
MPX output Impedance: 75 Ohms, unbalanced
MPX input Impedance: 600 Ohms, unbalanced
PC Board Size: 98x65mm
Audio connectors: all RCA jacks are mounted on the board
Power jack: on board, 2.1mm, center positive
RDS carrier: 57KHz, phase locked to stereo pilot or internally generated (if mono)
RDS filter with very sharp passband switched capacitor filter (excellent rejection superior to other cheaper units out there)
Audio Input Level: 0 dB (input level is preserved at output - no distortion of level by the unit)
RDS output level: adjustable with a trimmer
RS232 connector on the PCB for connectivity with a PC
Galvanically isolated from RS232 (PC) port, preventing ground loops (hum), a feature not found in any of the other low cost units out there
Included program supports all Windows flavours! Jazzler support included!

Unit work independently from the PC (memory stays after power-off).


Now, the magic question for you is:
How many operational amplifiers are located on the RDS MAX 30 board?

Post your estimate here in the forum, there is only one allowed per forum member.

You have a month, contest ends on September 31th.

Good luck, everyone!

Keep them coming, guys.

If more than one of you estimates the same number, I'll have Nina
draw one from the lot (while blindfolded, of course).

So yes, if someone else estimated 5, you still can estimate 5 yourself.
Just keep it at one estimate per person.

Good luck!

Sorry guys, I forgot to announce the winner.

Anyway, there are two op amps on board the RDS MAX 30 RDS encoder.

The winner should contact me with shipping information ASAP.

Congratulations gophast!
