# Trigonmetrical Functions

### In this section

Trigonometrical functions, sin, cos, tan and others are widely used in the design, development, and analysis of radio and electronics circuits, as well as in other applications such as antennas, and RF components.

These trignometric relationships are widely used in the design and development of many RF and other radio circuits. In particualr sin, cos and tan are the most widely used.

The fact that their use is embedded inth e very basics of electronics and radio technology is demonstrated by the fact that a single frequency repetitive waveform is known as a sine wave because of the fact that its waveform follows the values mapped out by the sine function.

sin (A + B) = sin (A) . cos (B) + cos (A) . sin (B)

cos (A + B) = cos (A) . cos (B) - sin (A) . sin (B)

sin (A - B) = sin (A) . cos (B) - cos (A) . sin (B)

cos (A - B) = cos (A) . cos (B) + sin (A) . sin (B)

sin (2A) = 2 . sin (A) . cos (A)

cos (2A) = cos^2 (A) - sin^2 (A) = 1- 2 sin^2 (A) = 2 cos^2 (A) - 1

sin^2 (A) + cos^2 (A) = 1

1 + tan^2 (A) = sec^2 (A)

1 + cot^2 (A) = cosec^2 (A)

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
