    A multifunction Home Control System is described, which combines HVAC, security alarm, hazard alarm, emergency alarm, lighting and appliance control into one central system. A unique "touch bar" concept is used to simplify the control panel, and provision is made for the easy addition of other features and functions to installed systems. View full abstract»

    The electronics industry has affected the American culture more profoundly than any other industry in our better than two hundred years as a nation. Television has significantly impacted our nation's habits for the past thirty to forty years. The method employed in design and manufacture of these consumer electronic products has evolved through three phases. Initially, consumer electronic circuits employed vacuum tubes as the major building block. Associated with the tube was a quick disconnect or tube socket and related terminal strip used as an interconnect and mounting system for passive components associated with the tube socket. These circuits were normally hand wired and hand soldered, although there were some attempts to automate the assembly operation thru the use of wire wrap terminals or solder cups. It was not until semiconductor devices came into wide usage and the printed circuit board replaced the terminal strip and tube socket, the door opened for automation. Approximately 1960, automatic assembly of printed circuit boards was employed by some of the larger electronic manufacturers. Most passive components employed in these circuits were substantially unchanged from the earlier vacuum tube circuits. Additionally, components could only be mounted on one side of the circuit board. The third phase is "surface mount" assembly whereby both sides of the printed circuit board is utilized. Cost and quality benefits along with accompanying size reduction will cause "surface mount" assembly systems to become the dominant circuit packaging method employed in consumer electronic packages as we move into the 1980's.

  • Magnetic Circuit of Flyback Transformers and Relevant Measurements

    Page(s): 18 - 26

    The magnetic circuit of flyback transformers of television receivers is analyzed. Formulas for the number of turns of primary coil and the thickness of the air gap are derived. Then the requirements on the U-cores are discussed. Various measurements may be made with a simple line output circuit. The waveform of the current in the primary coil may be observed and equivalent inductance of the coil calculated so that the thickness of the air gap may be determined experimentally to check with the calculated results. The dynamic B-H curve is a part of the hysteresis loop and examples are given. Formulas for the magnetic loss and the principle of measurement on this circuit are then discussed. View full abstract»

  • Optimum Design of the Power Dividers with Ferrite Toroids for CATV and/or MATV Systems

    The frequency characteristics for the power dividers with ferrite toroids, which are extensively used in CATV and/or MATV systems, are analyzed. The analytical optimum design method for the weakly-coupled power divider by the simplified model and the numerical optimum design method for the tightly-coupled power divider by the exact model are proposed, and the designed power dividers with ferrite toroids by the proposed methods have much improved frequency characteristics compared with the original power dividers. Thus, the useful bandwiths of all the power dividers have been extended from 5 to 500 MHz. Practical measurements show very good agreements with theoretical results, and, hence, the validity of the analyses and design methods for the power dividers with ferrite toroids are confirmed. Furthermore, the relations between the optimum circuit and ferrite constants have been clarified in reference to L0(i)Kfm. View full abstract»
