    An automatic kinescope biasing system has been developed which addresses many of the classical problem in this type of system. The system uses a grid pulsing technique to gain inmunity to heater-cathode leakage. The current reference employed varies with the cutoff of the gun in use to minimize bias error and a unique kine driver configuration allows cathode current and sensing to be performed at ...

    An electrostatic focus and deflection camera tube has the following advantages: no bulky yoke is required as all the electron optics are inside the tube, power consumption is very low, and the scanning rate can be varied. Several all-electrostatic camera tubes have been reported [1] [2] [3], but none of these tubes is currently in general use. View full abstract»

  • A New Computer-Controlled Graphic Audio Equalizer IC

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):537 - 543
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1659 KB)

    Many high-fidelity consumer audio systems include graphic equalizers to control the overall frequency response. This affords the user added flexibility in compensating for shortcomings in his equipment and listening environment. Graphic equalizers, whereas used in the past by only audiophiles, have now become so commonplace that they are even included in some automotive receivers and modular compo... View full abstract»

    A new type of monolithic AM receiver has been designed and integrated in a conventional 400MHz-fT bipolar process. Adjustments and band switches are completely eliminated, and production costs can be reduced considerably thanks to the unconventional approach, which uses an upconversion system.

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3716 KB)

    Color television attempts to match technology with the psychophysical properties of vision to provide a product that presents the magic of television to the consuming public. If it were not for flicker fusion and the tristimulus characteristic of the eye, color television as it is known today would not be possible. What has been achieved with the design of the Square-Planar tube is the use of the ... View full abstract»

    A 12-inch LCD module with 640 x 200 picture elements has been developed. The module is designed to replace CRT monitors; it has a separate video signal CRT interface circuit, and its aspect ratios of both display area and dot size are very similar to those of CRTs. It can display not only graphic patterns but numerals, alphabets and symbols up to 25 lines x 80 characters (2,000 characters). View full abstract»

    Within a future high definition TV-system the display offers most severe problems if we are aiming at an extended HDTV capable of transmitting pictures for "Telepresence" on large screens viewed from a distance of two times picture height or equal to the diagonal (e.g. 100"). A projection technology is thus required combining very high resolution and very high light output which is not availably t... View full abstract»

    Text-to-speech systems available today generate virtually unlimited speech from a prestored component sounds library, which is frequently created from a male voice. A major reason for that is due to the low pitch profile in the male voice. For example, the speech analysis software and commercial synthesizers seem to work more accurately and better with the male voice than the female voice. To over... View full abstract»

    In the field of security systems, many soultions have been devised aimed at implementing a "true electronic key" but they are unsatisfactory due to the need of electrical contacts with the lock or of power supply in the remote control systems. In addition, some solutions are not 100% secure because the access code canbe easily copied or falsified; so the best solution is a system that has the foll... View full abstract»
