    Sometimes a need arises to have two complementary currents and for this purpose one usually employs a differential pair. However, the conventional arrangement has the disadvantages of nonlinear control of the tail current switching and a small range of the control voltage. The author presents a circuit which eliminates this deficiency View full abstract»

    As standards are developed that limit harmonic current levels in off-line equipment, the need grows for solutions that do not increase the cost, size, and weight of power-factor-correction components. A method for correcting power factor that helps reduce cost, size, and weight involves using amorphous metal C-cores as the inductive element of power-factor-correction devices (e.g. a continuous-mod...

    Recording and transcription is the conversion of speech into text. This well-developed technology is vital in many segments of society. Yet, ironically, many technology-oriented persons who could greatly benefit from this versatile tool are not cognizant of how easily it can be implemented and what it can do for them. Transcription is not just for court reporting. The verbatim recording of busines... View full abstract»
