    Motivated by the ability of synthetic-aperture radar and related imaging systems to produce images of surprisingly high quality, we consider the problem of reconstructing the magnitude of a complex signal f from samples of the Fourier transform of f located in a small region offset from the origin. It is shown that high-quality speckle reconstructions are possible so long as the phase of f is high... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses specific design tradeoffs that should be considered relative to CMOS VLSI designs using gate-array, semi-custom, or full-custom implementations. The main focus is on design optimization for speed and device area and on meeting the on-chip load drive requirements using one- and two-dimensional expansion techniques. Detailed comparisons are made between the effectiveness of the ... View full abstract»

    Redundancy of both logic circuits and interconnections is the core principle of both RVLSI (Restructurable or Fault-Tolerant VLSI) and WSI (Wafer Scale Integration). For varying complexity and sizes of circuits different factors of redundancy are required. Effective use of redundancy requires understanding of the failures and failure modes at different stages of the processing and lifetime of VLSI... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic waves of an unknown origin were detected during a series of experiments on atomspherics at high frequencies. Directional records have been taken of these waves for a period of over a year. The data obtained from these records show that the horizontal component of the direction of arrival changes approximately 360 degrees in about 24 hours in a manner that is accounted for by the da...

    This paper describes and explains the theory of the feed-back principle and demonstrates how stability of amplification reduction of modulation products, and certain other advantages follow when stabilized feedback is applied to an amplifier. The underlying principle of design by means of which "singing" is avoided also is set forth. The paper concludes with some examples of results obtained on am... View full abstract»

    This paper gives a preliminary outline of work with a device which is truly an electric eye, the iconoscope, as a means of viewing a scene for television transmission and similar applications. It required ten years to bring the original idea to its present state of perfection. The iconoscope is a vacuum device with a photo-sensitive surface of a unique type. This photo-sensitive surface is scanned... View full abstract»

    In this paper systems are described whereby frequency band widths of the order of 1,000 kc or more may be transmitted for long distances over coaxial lines and utilized for purposes of multiplex telephony or television. A coaxial line is a metal tube surrounding a central conductor and separated from it by insulating supports. View full abstract»

    Phase-angle control of bridge rectifiers is a very popular method used for the speed control of dc drives. A simple method of obtaining the firing pulses using the ramp-comparison method is presented. The circuit uses a minimum number of components thereby increasing the reliability of the system. Experimental results are also presented. View full abstract»

    This letter presents a new numerical reconstruction procedure for the synthetic focus system which improves the transversal resolution in acoustic B-scope imaging. It involves calculations in Fourier domain and could be made especially efficient by the use of now commonly available hardwired FFT processors. Computer simulation demonstrates the feasibility of the procedure. View full abstract»
