Summary--The leakage resistance of capacitors as a function of time is a characteristic to be considered in the choice and control of capacitors, especially in many modern military electronics applications. This paper, by the use of transient circuit analysis, shows why most leakage resistance data accumulated in the electronics industry for capacitors are invalid. Valid data can be obtained by us...

Summary--This article gives a description of the state of the art insofar as small tubular tantalum capacitors for military and industrial applications are concerned. Foil anode paste-electrolyte, sintered-anode liquid-electrolyte, and solid-tantalum capacitors are described and their performance characteristics discussed. Data on reliability of the various types are presented. View full abstract»

Summary--This paper describes a recommended standard resistor-noise test system, with the theory of operation given in considerable detail. The system provides for the measurement of a definitive resistor-noise quality Index. This Index, the "microvolts-per-volt" Index, is a modified form of the "conversion gain" index formerly used at NBS. The Index is a decibel expression for the number of micro... View full abstract»
