  • Audio Applications of a Sheet-Beam Deflection Tube

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):3 - 7
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1017 KB)

    A number of unusual audio circuits has been developed which make use of a sheet-beam tube, type 6AR8. The 6AR8 tube is a miniature doubleplate sheet-beam tube which incorporates a pair of balanced deflectors to direct the electron beam to either of the two plates and a control grid to vary the intensity of the beam.

    A unique drift-free direct-coupled amplifier has been developed employing a clipper and an RC integrating circuit in a feedback loop for stability. Equations are developed and computed and experimental curves are given for amplitude and phase-shift response as a function of frequency showing an extremely sharp power drop-off at the low end.

    With the advent of a battery operated TV receiver, the need arises to develop circuits, especially sweep circuits, which will produce full scan with very little component weight and power consumption. These requirements are considered of paramount importance in the design of the vertical deflection system presented in this paper. View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the requirements which must be considered in the design of an r-f amplifier stage and converter for a transistor automobile receiver. Several coupling networks for the antenna and interstage circuits are discussed and performance data is given for various combinations of circuits. Data is given for a converter circuit including voltage and temperature effects on frequency stab... View full abstract»

  • A Five-Transistor Automobile Receiver Employing Drift Transistors

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):38 - 45
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1304 KB)

    This paper describes a five-transistor automobile receiver designed to use newly developed RCA drift transistors. These drift transistors, which inherently have a high maximum available gain and low feedback capacitance, provide good performance with a minimum number of stages, thus contributing to low over-all circuit cost.

    This paper describes the use of a new semiconductor device, a diode-triode transistor, to improve detection, automatic gain control, and audio amplification in transistorized broadcastband receivers. The use of this developmental device increases the detector efficiency of battery-operated broadcast-band receivers and permits a minimum number of component parts to be used. View full abstract»

    Recent developments in the art have dictated the division of this paper into two component parts. The first deals with a quadrapolar, magnetic lens of rotational non-symmetry used to achieve scan magnification with a television cathode ray tube. The second concerns the development of a negative, electrostatic, gauze lens exhibiting full rotational symmetry which is also used to provide scan magnif... View full abstract»

    Parametric amplifiers are distinguished from most active networks in that power is taken directly from an a-c source and that the phase of this source is significant in the amplification process. As a consequence of the harmonic spectrum produced by the interaction of the power source (pump) and the nonlinear element, the introduction of a small signal generates a pair of sidebands about each harm...

    Four terminal equivalent circuits of variable capacitance (parametric) diodes used in various configurations of converters and amplifiers are presented. These equivalent circuits are derived from small signal approximations for the non-linear dynamic capacitance of a diode. The cases considered involve three frequencies, namely input and output signal frequencies and pumping frequency for converte... View full abstract»
