  • A Statistical Description of Coincidences among Random Pulse Trains

    Publication Year: 1958, Page(s):827 - 830
    Cited by:  Papers (7)

    A simple formulation is developed for describing statistically the time coincidences among a set of random pulse trains. Specifically, each pulse train is assumed to consist of pulses occurring randomly and having pulse lengths with some known distribution. It is then possible to determine the statistical distribution for the resulting durations of coincidences among several individually specified... View full abstract»

  • Transient Response of Drift Transistors

    Publication Year: 1958, Page(s):830 - 838
    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1357 KB)

    The short-circuit transient response of a drift transistor is found for a step of input current. The one-dimensional partial differential equation for minority carriers in the base is solved by a Laplace transform technique yielding the rise, storage, and fall times in the common-emitter and common-base configurations. The improvement in rise time due to the built-in field in a drift transistor is... View full abstract»

  • Terminal Properties of Magnetic Cores

    The reversal of magnetization of cores with rectangular hysteresis loop is investigated. For materials whose thickness is more than one thousandth of an inch, the switching is determined from the static loop and the solution of the appropriate field problem; for thinner materials the B-H concept is not sufficient to determine the instantaneous state of magnetization and to characterize the core as...

  • Some General Properties of Nonlinear Elements. II. Small Signal Theory

    Cited by:  Papers (67)  |  Patents (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1954 KB)

    The simplest types of nonlinear capacitor modulators, demodulators, and negative conductance amplifiers, in which components at only two signal frequencies are present, are studied by means of the well-known small-signal analysis. The results of this analysis of course agree with the general energy relations of Part I, but in addition give the gain, bandwidth, terminal admittances, and sensitivity... View full abstract»

  • Very Low-Noise Traveling-Wave Amplifier

    Publication Year: 1958, Page(s):861 - 867
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3970 KB)

    Recent improvements in design and techniques are described which have lowered the noise figure of a developmental traveling-wave amplifier from 9 db to 6 db. Some selected tubes have had noise figures as low as 4.8 db. The improved tube is now commercially available as the RCA-6861 low-noise traveling-wave tube. A general explanation of beam noise is presented and the presently employed noise-redu... View full abstract»

  • New Applications of Impedance Networks as Analog Computers for Electronic Space Charge and for Semiconductor Diffusion Problems

    Publication Year: 1958, Page(s):868 - 877
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2671 KB)

    Starting from a general partial differential equation of the second order, which includes the equations of Laplace, of Poisson, and those of semiconductor diffusion problems, an equivalent equation with finite differences is discussed. This leads to resistance and to resistance-capacitance networks. Resistance chains are applied to high vacuum diodes of one-dimensional character (plane, circular, ... View full abstract»

  • Carrier-to-Noise Statistics for Various Carrier and Interference Characteristics

    Techniques are presented for the calculation of the statistical properties of the resultant carrier-to-noise ratios of systems subject to both additive and multiplicative noise. The cases considered are those in which the desired signal is either steady or exhibits Rayleigh fading while the interference consists of receiver noise plus an interfering signal which may be steady, Rayleigh fading, Gau...

  • Simultaneous Asynchronous Oscillations in Class-C Oscillators

    Consideration is given to simultaneous asynchronous oscillations in systems having a moving reference point. The system chosen for study is a Class-C pentode oscillator. It is shown, both analytically and experimentally, that self-starting asynchronous oscillations are attainable in such a system. Transient and steady-state solutions are obtained for the Class-C oscillator containing one and two d... View full abstract»

  • Theoretical Diversity Improvement in Frequency-Shift Keying

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2410 KB)

    Methods of using diversity to improve frequencyshift keyed receptions in the presence of Rayleigh fading are analyzed. In the absence of prior information about signal amplitude and phase, square-law combination is optimum; the error rate for this combination method has been found. If signal amplitude and phase are exactly known prior to reception of the signal, coherent combination and detection ... View full abstract»
