    The information "explosion" poses a challenging problem to the engineer or scientist interested in keeping up with his field. While many large-scale systems of information retrieval have been developed, there is a need for small-scale, personal information retrieval systems that may be easily used by an individual. This paper describes what the authors feel is a highly useful solution to this prob... View full abstract»

    Teaching logic design algorithm development through computer program aids useable by a novice programmer is discussed. The basis for the method is a set of FORTRAN compatible subroutines which perform the tedious tasks of logic function input/output and manipulation, together with some simple combinatorial operations. These routines allow the student to concentrate on analysis and synthesis algori... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to present two related undergraduate laboratory projects which involve basic data-handling procedures (e.g., sampling, quantization, etc.) in an elementary, though nontrivial fashion. These procedures are used in the course of lab studies in linear system identification and correlation detection. The portions of the experiments which require techniques usually reserved...

  • Symmetric Circuits and the Concept of Logical Potential

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):138 - 140

    Symmetric circuits with more than one output can traditionally be reduced by shifting down if the outputs have certain properties. It is shown here that any nontrivial symmetric circuit can be shifted down using the method described. The reduction is made logical and simple to understand by means of the concept of logical potential, in which the circuit is diagrammed, and a "potential" assigned to... View full abstract»

  • The Design and Application of a Minority Logic Gate-A Senior Project

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):141 - 146
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2009 KB)

    As a senior laboratory project, fifteen minority logic gates were designed and built utilizing MOS field-effect transistors. The minority gates were then used as logic modules in the design of a binary comparator, a parallel binary adder, and a ternary counter. While the project did not yield an economically competitive logic gate, minority logic applications were verified, student creativity was ... View full abstract»

    Recent technological developments have intensified the problems of educating young people for the engineering profession. Even though these developments have given birth to many areas of study in engineering, the increasing demand for engineers has in many cases forced engineering schools to abridge, rather than lengthen, their curriculum. The responsibility of providing a lasting and meaningful e... View full abstract»

    Solid-state amplifying devices have two common features, 1) an inherent negative resistance, identified as the current or voltage source, and 2) a high electric field region, which manifests itself as the output impedance. A generalized equivalent circuit is developed using the above concepts. Several semiconductor amplifying devices are analyzed and their performances compared; the devices discus...

  • The Sixteen Faces of Feedback: A Catalogue of the Basic Negative Feedback Amplifier Configurations

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1219 KB)

    Classical feedback literature refers to series and shunt feedback or voltage and current feedback, implying only two feedback configurations which may be employed with an amplifier. Actually there are four separate configurations: 1) voltage sensed at output and voltage returned to input, 2) voltage sensed at output and current returned to input, 3) current sensed at output and voltage returned to...

    Nathan's rules are stated and their applications are illustrated. The rules provide the expansion of admittance functions of linear networks which may include reciprocal and nonreciprocal branches, infinite-gain operational amplifiers, dependent current or voltage sources, vacuum tubes, transistors, and ideal transformers. Kirchhoff's rules for reciprocal networks as well as signal-flow-graph rule... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (553 KB)

    The concept and properties of the impulse or delta function have been presented in many books and periodicals. However, when the impulse function arises in undergraduate courses dealing with transform methods, great confusion can exist in the general application. The purpose here is to discuss the Laplace transform of the impulse function in such a manner that will not cause confusion when applied... View full abstract»

    It is shown that the sum of the residues of a proper rational function X(s) = K(N(s)/D(s)) at all its poles is given by Kδm,n—1. N(s) and D(s) are monic polynomials of degree m and n, respectively, with m ≤ n—1. δm,n—1 is the Kronecker symbol. This result simplifies calculations encountered in the partial fraction inversion of proper rational Laplace... View full abstract»

    A simple stability criterion based on the return difference is established: Draw the phase plot of the return difference 1 + GH(jω) vs. ω, if and only if θ(∞)-∞(0) = (n + 2m) π/2, the system is stable, where n is the number of poles of GH(jω) at the origin and m is that in the right half plane; θ(∞) and θ(0) are the ph...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (656 KB)

    A graphical method is developed for plotting the field pattern of thin linear antennas with sinusoidal current distribution. The method is particularly useful for getting a general idea about the field pattern of antennas having any desired length. It is also useful in determining the effect of a change in the length of resonant antennas on the field pattern. View full abstract»
