    A tran parent-plate with an electronic outfit and a set of transparencies give an easy-to-use instructional aid. The function of several digital circuits can be demonstrated by a common overhead projector. Activation of a clock or reset pulse and the states of flip-flops are visible on the screen. Different digital circuits are demonstrated simply by exchanging an overlaid transparency. View full abstract»

  • Computer Solution of Double-Stub Impedance-Matching Problems

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):120 - 124

    An analytical solution is formulated for the general doublestub impedance-matching problem for transmission lines. Different combinations of the load impedance and the distance between the stubs are considered. The formulas are easily programmed on a digital computer and numerical answers can be obtained much more quickly and accurately than is possible with a Smith chart. A computer program is at...

  • Moving Magnets and the Symmetry of Maxwell's Equations

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):124 - 127

    The electric and magnetic fields associated with moving magnetic dipoles are derived, at an elementary level, by introducing fictitious magnetic charges and by considering the symmetry of Maxwell's equations. The result is applied to the derivation of the spinorbit term in hydrogen-like atoms. View full abstract»

    The recognition by a subject of information from a video display terminal is investigated in the time domain using information theory and control system concepts. Video stimuli consisting of specially selected words are displayed randomly in space and randomly in order for this purpose. The conclusion leads us to believe that the information theory approach has a higher potential than conventional... View full abstract»

    It is possible to produce electrical signals proportional to symmetrical component (sequence) quantities from directly measurble phase quantities in three-phase power circuits. This paper presents details of a simple sequence filter design using the operational amplifier as its basic component. Such signals can be used in the laboratory or in a classroom demonstration, in situations which provide ... View full abstract»

  • Practical Education for Control Engineers at the Grenoble Polytechnic Institute

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):141 - 145
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1915 KB)

    This paper describes the practical education that is given at the Grenoble Polytechnic Institute in the recently created section of control engineering. A set of laboratories in the main areas of the curriculum is briefly presented: control of continuous systems, logic, microprocessors and real-time systems, and signal processing. Specific emphasis is placed upon the fact that this mode of teachin... View full abstract»

  • A View of Computer Science Education in Japan

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):145 - 147
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (690 KB)

    The purpose of this note is to share some findings on computer science education in Japan based primarily on discussions during my recent visit there. The historical developments of computer science departments in Japan and their curricula are briefly discussed. Two noteworthy features of their curricula are 1) high mathematical standards and 2) a demanding first course in computer science which o... View full abstract»

    The National Science Foundation (NSF) issued a grant to support the formation of a national consortium of universities and industries. The mission of the consortium is to coordinate independent efforts of the member universities to update the engineering and applied sciences curricula for the 1980's. Shortly after its formation, the consortium recommended that industry "encourage the development o... View full abstract»

    In this paper we describe a new graduate education program involving industry-university cooperation in the form of a partnership between Fairchild Industries, Germantown, MD, and the University of Maryland, College Park. We analyze the reasons that made such a partnership desirable to the company and to the university. We describe the nature and main features of the progam, compare it to earlier ...

  • On Frequency Transformations

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):154 - 157
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (831 KB)

    Frequency transformations are fundamental in the design of analog and digital filters and have been in use for many years. In the lowpass-bandpass or bandstop transformation, there are two ways to carry out the design. The filters resulting from these two ways, however, may be quite different. This fact does not seem to be widely known and, to the best of our knowledge, has never been discussed in... View full abstract»

  • Wye-Delta and Delta-Wye Transformations: An Instructive Derivation

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):157 - 159
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (402 KB)

    A simple derivation of both the wye-delta and delta-wye transformations is presented. This derivation stresses the concept of duality, illustrates the formulation and solution of node and loop matrix equations, and explains the role played by the wye-delta and delta-wye transfonnations in simplifying circuits.
