    This paper describes a general study of transistors in television receivers. For this purpose the development of a completely transistorized television receiver was undertaken. An experimental model using 37 developmental transistors and a five-inch kinescope housed in a cabinet 13×12×7 inches was constructed. This portable receiver operates on a single channel using a self-contained loop, and h... View full abstract»

    Transistors have certain characteristics which are not present in vacuum tubes. Some of these characteristics may be best classified as symmetrical properties. The first kind of symmetry may be found in the complementary characteristics of the n-p-n and p-n-p transistors. Circuits using both kinds of transistors in combination provide unique advantages in reduction of components and other circuit ... View full abstract»

    Negative impedances having very stable characteristics are obtained with circuits using transistors. The physical characteristics of transistors, compactness, long life, simple power requirements, plus constancy of pertinent electrical parameters enhance their practical utility in the production of negative impedances.

    This paper presents the theory and a description of a course-line navigation computer for use with the presently available vhf omnirange navigation system or with the proposed complete omnirange-dme navigation system. A position fix may be obtained with the equipment by triangulation using line of bearing information from two omniranges. A further computation then produces course and distance indi...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1011 KB)

    This paper deals with a theoretical circuit analysis of a single-ended push-pull audio amplifier. Linear tube characteristics and small signals are assumed. The problem of impedance matching is first discussed. The properties and the requirements of a satisfactory driver stage are analyzed, and an output stage using an impedance matching output transformer is discussed. The effects of the plate-to...

  • A Comparison of the Informational Capacities of Amplitude- and Phase-Modulation Communication Systems

    In this paper are calculated the informational capacities and the optimum statistics of communication systems consisting of an amplitude- and/or phase-modulated transmitter; a medium, which may include the rf and IF portions of the receiver, and in which white thermal noise of the same bandwidth as the transmitted signal is added to the latter; and a receiver responding to the amplitude and/or pha...

  • Distributed Amplifier Theory

    Cited by:  Papers (12)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (565 KB)

    The mathematical theory of the operation of the plate line of a distributed amplifier is developed using matrix algebra as a tool. The effects of a finite number of current generators placed at regular intervals on what would otherwise be an ordinary lumped-constant transmission line are determined. The theory predicts the manner in which the output of a distributed amplifier is changed with propa... View full abstract»

  • Calculation of a Waveguide-Loaded Resonator for Interdigital Magnetrons

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):763 - 769
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1500 KB)

    The electromagnetic-field configuration in the various parts of the resonator is considered, as well as the boundary relations at the junctions between them. The result is used to relate resonance frequency and Q to the geometry and to design the output transducer so that the desired slot conductance is obtained for the electronic operation of the magnetron.

  • The Effective Number of Pulses Per Beamwidth for a Scanning Radar

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):770 - 774
    Cited by:  Papers (12)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1102 KB)

    The effective number of pulses received when a radar scans past a target is analyzed in terms of the integration of a train of pulses of amplitudes determined by the antenna beam pattern. It has been customary to take for this number the pulses occurring in the half-power beamwidth, ß, and to assume that these pulses were all of full (mid-beam) amplitude (this assumption roughly compensating for ...

  • A Note on Moving Poles in Nonlinear Oscillating Systems

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):774 - 777
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (646 KB)

    Since poles of the complex imnmittance of a linear system represent the decrements and frequencies of rotating phasors in the linear time domain, it is suggested that a nonlinear system might be represented by moving poles whose instaneous decrements and frequencies are associated with phasors rotating in the nonlinear or time-distorted phase space. This idea is applied to the analysis of a class ... View full abstract»

  • The Effects of Terminations and Dissipation on the Insertion Loss of Some Simple Ladder Filters

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):777 - 780
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (929 KB)

    The use of nonstandard terminations improves the selectivity of the simple ladder filters and makes it possible to use elements of relatively low Q. Universal curves of insertion loss, indicating the combined effects of the terminations and of dissipation in the filter elements, are presented so as to apply to low-pass, high-pass, and band-pass filters for the constant-¿ half and full section and...

  • The Field Radiated by a Ring Quasi-Array of an Infinite Number of Tangential or Radial Dipoles

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):781 - 789
    Cited by:  Papers (23)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2044 KB)

    A homogeneous ring array of axial dipoles will radiate a vertically polarized field that concentrates to an increasing degree around the horizontal plane with increasing increment of the current phase per revolution. There is reason to believe that by using a corresponding antenna system with tangential or radial dipoles, a field may be obtained that has a similar useful structure as the above-men...

    For a linear array having any given number of elements it is shown that an optimum single-beam endfire pattern can be produced by proper choice of current distribution and element spacing. View full abstract»
