    The task of determining the acceptance of a new product in itself is difficult, but it in no way compares to the task of determining the acceptance of a revolutionary product of which there is no existing product to compare. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the method used on such a product, the Speak & Spelltm, to establish its acceptance in the market and develop consumer awareness of its utility.

  • The Patent System and Trade Secret Protection -- Valuable Assistance to the Design Engineer and Protection for State of the Art Innovation

    Publication Year: 1981 , Page(s): xi - xx
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1878 KB)  

    The application of Patent and Trade Secret law frequently involves the Electronic Design Engineer, both in his capacity as technical designer and in market research activities. An understanding of patents and trade secret protection is useful to enable the Designer to properly employ the advantages associated with those aspects of intellectual property protection. Frequently the Engineer must confer with in-house or outside legal counsel in the pre- paration of a patent application, or for guidance in the protection of his or his employer's proprietary informa- tion. In many situations, Designers frequently do not appreciate the protection available for significant advancements over the "prior art", or the capabilities of the patent classification system to provide current engineering and marketing information. This paper will provide guidance to the Design Engineer for more fully utilizing the protection and benefits afforded by the patent system and trade secret law. View full abstract»

    A color television camera using a single interline transfer charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor having 384(H) x 490(V) cells and a green dot checkerboard pattern color filter array was developed. This paper describes a discussion on Bayer geometry as a color filter geometry and the facts that, using the present number of picture cells as a parameter, the Bayer geometry color filter array is clearly superior to the interline geometry color filter array (1) reported previously. This color television camera has obtained satisfactory performance for home video tape recorder (VTR) use in regard to resolution, sensitivity and color rendition. View full abstract»

  • Programmable Mixing of Color Graphics and External Video Using New Lsi Display Processor

    Publication Year: 1981 , Page(s): 35 - 39
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1506 KB)  

    The mixing of two video sources up to now has been accomplished by using discrete analog components. The new LSI video display processor (VDP) is the first integrated circuit with the provision for mixing, under software control, an external composite video signal with its own 15 color single pin composite video. The mechanics of this interface and its implications are discussed. View full abstract»

  • The Development of High-quality Receivers for Am Stereo

    Almost all current designs for AM receivers or tuners use a ferrite antenna and/or a tuned RF stage with one or two separate tuned RF circuits. These are basically just slight modifications of the old 5-tube radio. Because of this, almost all literature written on the subject of AM receiver design was written when large tube-type receivers were popular. View full abstract»

  • FM Receivers in Automobiles: a Case for Deiversity Reception

    The inconsistent quality of FM reception in automobiles is a major impediment to the well-deserved growth of this important medium. Although FM inherently has the potential for high- fidelity performance and has become a significant competitor to AM broad- casting to the home, it cannot hope to achieve full parity with AM until it can also successfully reach the auto- mobile audience. This is not likely to happen as long as FM reception in autos is handicapped by the phenomenon of multipath distortion. View full abstract»

    The home VCR is steadily gaining world-wide popu- larity with its high performance and low cost, and now is considered one of the most important home electronic appliances. Since the VCR employs a large number of electronic components, it tends to be quite complicated. To avoid this complication as well as to improve its performance and reliability, it's a must to simplify the circuits. The most effective way to achieve this is to reduce the number of components through extensive use of ICs in electronic circuits. Also this approach will be most effective for portable-type VCRs which must be of compact and light-weight design. View full abstract»

    Semi-custom integrated circuit component and gate arrays have been available for about 10 years. Early developments focused on the use of bipolar technology with heavy emphasis on linear applications. Recent developments with other emerging technologies have been more directed to the digital field. However the bipolar/linear applications have continued to expand at a steady rate with applications in many fields such as: Consumer Products Medical Applications Telecommunications Military Industrial Automotive Power/Servo Controls View full abstract»

    The D2B bus (Domestic Digital Bus) is a multi-master bus which can be used by various consumer units to talk to one another in a well defined manner. (Fig. 1) The bus is a serial bus and all bus control information and data flows occur serially over one connection. The only property demanded of this connection is that it provide either a "wire-and" or a "wire-or" facility. Thus the transmission medium can be a copper wire, a glass fibre, an infra-red beam or any other transmission medium which fulfils the above requirements. View full abstract»
