    Digital tuning system approaches to AM-FM broadcast receivers are becoming increasingly popular as manufacturers are finding lower component costs and increased features give their products greater appeal. Operational features of a digitally tuned receiver include: ¿ Precise tuning of station frequency ¿ Display of exact receive frequency ¿ Keyboard entry of station frequency ¿ Storage of multiple stations in memory ¿ Pushbutton up/down scan through the band ¿ Pushbutton search (stop on next station) ¿ Power on to last station ¿ Provision for time of day clock ¿ Static drive of LED for noise-free operation ¿ Able to address CB synthesizer View full abstract»

    Together with very fast dividers and a PLL system it is possible to digitally process the oscillator frequencies of a TV tuner. With this method you can set up a tuning system which remembers a once programmed channel with a resolution that was up till now reserved only for costly and highly professional equipment. The control commands for this system are derived from an infrared remote control that links to the tuning system. View full abstract»

    A digital audio system now includes a home use VTR as record and reproduce media. In this system, audio signal is converted into digital codes by PCM, which are again converted such that the resultant signal be identical with NTSC TV format. This insures ready use of existing TV equipments, their peripherals, and networks. View full abstract»

    Deflection system in a color TV consists of a sync separator, vertical and horizontal oscillators, and an AFC circuit. Several devices to perform these functions have been developed. Stringent requirements of frequency stability necessiated the development of sophisticated devices such as AFC and frequency count down IC's. View full abstract»

    One of the most widely used tuning system in the USA at present is a one-knob rotary channel selector, which presets TV channels with potentiometers, and selects them with a mechanical rotary switch. But in this system we need the experienced adjustment labor and devoted time in order to preset the exact tuning point with potentiometers. View full abstract»

  • Soft-Flash Picture Tubes

    Between the gun electrodes of picture tubes, high electric field strengths are present. In a typical color picture tube there is a voltage difference of some 20 kV across a gap of about 1 mm, between the focus electrode and the anode of the gun. Although the utmost precautions are taken in the design and manufacture of the tube, there is always a chance that a flashover will eventually occur. When it does, the discharge current rapidly reaches a very high value, inducing voltages throughout the receiver chassis which may destroy semiconductors. Even with the most careful circuit layout, complete protection is difficult to ensure. View full abstract»

  • Perspectives on Small, Flat Video Displays

    Much work has been done during the past ten years on the development of flat displays for television (1). The flat-panel display warrants attention in that it does not possess some of the inherent limitations of the cathode ray tube (CRT). The flat panel display will be lighter and less bulky than the CRT and will not require a 25 KV power supply. The flat-panel display also has the potential of being made in any size, conceivably from 1 in.2 to sizes larger than 15 ft.2. The CRT, however, is limited to a practical screen size of 4 ft.2. Also, for small screen sizes, the CRT consumes too much power for prolonged battery operation and cannot be made much smaller than 10 in.2. The flat panel will not possess the large fragile glass envelope of the CRT making it better suited for rugged portable operation. View full abstract»
