    The IEEE's Center for the History of Electrical Engineering is the latest manifestation of a sensitivity about and interest in history that the electrical engineers have shown for much of the last century. Particularly since the late 1940's, the IEEE's predecessors, the Institute of Radio Engineers and the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, have recognized a professional responsibility to...

    Thomas A. Edison left a vast and diverse record of his inventive and business activity which can help us better understand the context and processes of technological creativity. The nature and impact of such creativity are neither widely nor well understood today. The array of Edison-related experimental notes and drawings, correspondence, legal and business records, and artifacts provides detaile... View full abstract»

    The recent rapid emergence of the computer as a prominent technology of our own time has generated an entire subfield of the history of technology called the "history of computing," which offers historians new opportunities to investigate a rapidly growing economic and social activity. The history of computing has grown rapidly in the past decade. This paper offers a brief review of the stages in ... View full abstract»

    America's young electrical industry grew dramatically in the 1880's. As the technology boomed, thousands of new jobs opened. Industry leaders realized early on that many of these jobs would have to be filled by workers with specialized training¿training that was not available anywhere. Although the manufacturers started in-house "test" and "expert" programs almost immediately, they were aware tha... View full abstract»

    The Division of Electricity at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History is the national repository for objects significant to the history of electrical science and technology. Although the Division has operated as a separate unit for less than three decades, activities at the Institution have contributed to the study of electrical history since the middle of the 19th century.

    The course in electrical engineering began in 1907, 83 years after the founding of the Institute. The adding of two new courses that year laid the foundation for the true polytechnic envisioned by the early leaders of the Institute. A large gift from the widow of Russell Sage provided the financial support for the expansion in facilities and programs. The curriculum established was in the Renssela... View full abstract»

    In 1956 a new electrical engineering text entitled Pulse and Digital Circuits (New York: McGraw-Hill, 1956) appeared. The book, by Jacob Millman and Herbert Taub, was an immediate worldwide success. There are two reasons. It was one of the first American texts to open the door to pulse and digital waveforms and circuits-the brand new and very extensive technology acquired during the World War II d...

  • Zero Distortions in Negative Feedback Amplifiers

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):243 - 245
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1325 KB)

    A differential equation is derived which enables the determination of the input-output characteristic ß of a nonlinear feedback network which results in zero distortions in the output of the feedback amplifier. The nature of this feedback network is related to the nonlinear characteristic of the basic amplifier and the operating point. The approach is useful for both small and large signals.
