    During the first twelve years of their existence, microprocessors have evolved at a dramatic pace in terms of numbers, technology, power, functionality, and applications. This paper begins with a technical explanation of key microprocessor specifications. Four generations of microprocessors are considered in detail, along with case studies of popular chip families. Special-purpose processors, soft... View full abstract»

    System screening during electronic equipment manufacturing often cost-effective opportunities to remove and replace defective items. Burn-in is an important screening method used in predicting, achieving, and enhancing field reliability. Based on a simple calculation, we would expect the number of failures in the field to be a decreasing function of burn-in period. Especially, the expected number ... View full abstract»

    Recent theoretical and experimental progress in understanding sound transmission through a random field of internal waves is reviewed. Some attempt is made to place this work in historical relation to similar efforts in radio-wave propagation through the ionosphere and light propagation through the atmosphere. It is emphasized that internal waves as a random medium possess several new features unf... View full abstract»

    Since its development in the 1960's, the technique of obtaining high-resolution radio images of astronomical objects using Fourier synthesis has advanced sufficiently so that today such images often provide better angular resolution than is obtainable with the largest optical telescopes. A synthesis array measures the Fourier transform of the observed brightness distribution by cross-correlating t... View full abstract»

    The problem of determining a computable ordering (whenever it exists) of a digital network is shown to be the same as a well-known problem in Computer Science and Graph Theory literature, namely, the problem of topologically sorting the nodes of an acyclic directed graph. View full abstract»

    In the radio camera, adaptive control techniques self-cohere the antenna elements of a phased array, thereby permitting the system to be distorted and even time varying. By doing so, enormous antenna arrays can be constructed A two-dimensional (range-angle) radio camera imaging experiment is reported. A 39-m X-band (3-cm wavelength) array was formed on a cable strung between two towers, each 10 m ... View full abstract»
