    This paper proposes a simplified treatment of microwave transit-time devices by dividing the device operation into two regions: the injection and the drift regions. This division may simplify the mathematical formulation and bring out the physical mechanism of the operation more clearly; but it also imposes a limitation that only such devices in which this division can be drawn clearly may be anal...

    The Miller effect model of a common emitter (and common source) amplifier is presented to students in beginning analog circuits courses [1]-[5] to help model the high-frequency characteristics of the amplifier. The standard Miller effect circuit is used to determine the dominant pole of the amplifier, but is inaccurate and not useful at higher frequencies. Presented here is an improved Miller effe...

    Techniques of white-light optical signal processing are coupled with a relatively unsophisticated system featuring low cost, portability, and high processing power-to-cost ratio. The low-cost white-light optical processor (LCP) offers educators and businesses a powerful teaching aid while providing a system capable of optical processing usually associated with complex optical systems. Experimental... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an original fourth-semester activity, for students in engineering, which now has been running for eight years. It is a program of multidisciplinary team projects, for about 50 students, which include industrial, social, and economic implications. Guidance is provided by 10-15 members of the academic and scientific staff, as well as by 5-10 engineers from industry. The projects... View full abstract»

    In this paper, electromagnetic theory is presented by expanding upon ideas that electrical engineering students already possess. The equivalent network concept, well known for lumped circuits (ordinary differential equations), is generalized to electromagnetic fields in free space (partial differential equations). The network, rigorously equivalent to Maxwell's equations, is suitable for all probl... View full abstract»

    Tutorial, design, and project work in signal processing courses require substantial computational effort and data handling, and rely on computer support. The requirements on the support software of modularity, friendliness, good documentation, and extensibility are identified. This paper describes the structure and underlying methodology of a package written in Basic to meet these needs. It consis... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a distributed process interface system which was implemented on a minicomputer at the University of Cape Town, the primary function of which is to give hands-on experience of real-time computing to undergraduate engineering students. This process interface is well suited to use in the educational environment because it can be accessed by several users, concurrently, in a manne... View full abstract»

    A one-year study was conducted at Michigan Technological University to evaluate the effectiveness of the Control Data Corporation MicroPlato Fortran lessons as a replacement for classroom instruction. The one-half grade lower average achieved by the group using the computer-aided instruction mode compared to that of the group taught in the traditional classroom environment was found to be statisti...

    A novel method of fabricating the uniformly distributed RC notch network from commonly available materials is discussed. The unique realization underscores the importance and relevance of applying microelectronic technology to synthesize this important circuit device. The theoretical and experimental performance results are compared for the ideal and detuned cases; they agree quite well. The impor... View full abstract»
