    Like other human institutions, engineering is in a process of continuous evolution. One fundamentally important broadening of the scope, opportunities, and obligations of the engineer is forcefully presented in the following editorial by the Secretary of the IRE (who, it may be mentioned, is himself an outstanding instance of the successful blending and performance in an individual of the function...

    Several pulse methods for the transmission of television sound on the picture carrier during the line-blanking intervals are analyzed from the points of view of signal-to-noise ratio, audio fidelity, and transmitter and receiver design. The advantages of duplex transmission are: (1) elimination of a separate sound transmitter; (2) elimination of the ambiguity and difficulty which may occur when a ... View full abstract»

    A theoretical study is made of the behavior of resistors, particularly the type where the resistance element is in the form of a film so there is negligible skin effect. When the electrical length of the resistor is a small fraction of a wavelength, it is shown that certain optimum proportions of the resistor exist in order best to terminate a radio-frequency transmission line.

  • An Analysis of Three Self-Balancing Phase Inverters

    Publication Year: 1946, Page(s):67p - 70p

    A self-balancing phase inverter is a circuit converting one driving voltage to two output voltages of opposite phase but of essentially equal magnitude by an inherent characteristic of the device and not by virtue of any critical adjustment. The algebraic solution of three self-balancing phase inverters is given, assuming all circuit elements are linear. Included in the solution are the conditions... View full abstract»

  • Pulse Response of Thyratron Grid-Control Circuits

    Publication Year: 1946, Page(s):71p - 77p

    For applications in which a thyratron must function as an accurately controlling device, rather precise grid control is required. Frequently, the desired precision of firing is obtained by applying peaked voltage pulses to the grid of the thyratron. Satisfactory operation of the thyratron and its associated grid-control circuit usually requires an external grid-cathode capacitance and a current-li... View full abstract»

  • The Steady-State Operational Calculus

    The direct and inverse transforms of the steady-state operational calculus are presented, together with two methods of evaluating the inverse transform, the first resulting in a Fourier series and the second giving a sum function. A proof of the inversion theorem connecting the two transforms is outlined in the Appendix. Two examples are presented illustrating the application of this operational c... View full abstract»

    The operation of the differential, microphone is described, and the noise discrimination of differential microphones operating on various orders of pressure gradients is obtained. Equations of the discrimination against random sounds are developed for both theoretical and practical microphones. Curves are drawn, showing discrimination versus frequency. The noise discrimination of the nth-order pre... View full abstract»
