    It was almost a decade ago that a new color picture tube system1) was being developed in this division. The system was named "TRINITRON". This name was intended to describe its unique design principles adopting in-line beam configuration, single large-aperture electron lens, and an Aperture Grille with a cylindrical face plate. Excellent displays were achieved with high picture quality and resolut... View full abstract»

    The degradation of kinescope spot size (spot blooming) with increasing beam current is a well known phenomenon that has significant bearing on kinescope resolution. For purposes of improving kinescope design evaluation and production lot monitoring, it is desirable to quantify the effects of beam current on picture quality. The basis for this paper is the assumption that kinescope performance can ... View full abstract»

    An exact description of the characteristics of a picture tube spot at the screen of the tube -its size and shape as current level varies and its core/haze ratio as focus varies -is not readily obtained using most available analytical techniques. For instance, scanning slits or probes that are often used for this purpose fail to faithfully reproduce the lack of symmetry that may exist in a CRT elec... View full abstract»

    Varactor tuners have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Mechanical tuners may soon be a thing of the past as new, lower cost, more versatile tuning systems are developed. Several methods of interfacing the customer to the varactor tuner have already enjoyed market acceptance or have been published. All of these tuning systems fall into one of two major categories. Closed loop, or... View full abstract»

    New developments in T. V. add-on areas such as V. D. R., games, and data display, have produced a common need for composite video encoding and R. F. modulation circuits to interface with the T. V. receiver. This paper reviews the basic reqiurements for this area and then presents a new T. V. video modulation system using only one integrated circuit.* The new system includes the sound subcarrier os... View full abstract»

    The growth in sales of Personal Use Radio, more commonly called Citizens Band Radio, equipment since 1974 has been nothing short of phenomenal. It took 16 years, from 1958 to 1974, to get the first million Class D Citizen Band licensees. At the end of 1975 the figure reached approximately 3.3 million. The Electronic Industries Association predicts there will be more than 20 million CB radios in us... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a new corona discharge detector for flyback transformers. It can detect corona discharges which are generated by the flyback pulse and have a great effect on the reliability of flyback transformers. It also adds greatly to the insulation design and quality control of flyback transformers. In measurement of corona discharges generated by flyback pulses, harmonic components of t...

    Plasticfilm capacitors are commonly used in television circuits where they may be exposed to non-sinusoidala-c voltages. These capacitors are often unimpregnated and therefore normally have a corona starting voltage in the range of 250 to 500 volts rms for a 6O Hz sine wave corona measurement. If the capacitors are series wound with two or three series sections, then the corona starting voltage is... View full abstract»
