    Severe requirements have to be met by the transistor as a video output amplifier. Of the few known types of video amplification - single transistor, push-pull, doubler, and phase splitter -- the phase splitter, presented in this paper, represents the advantage of consuming least power, lower voltage and power transistor ratings, higher input impedance, high voltage gain, and no phase shift problems.

  • A Television Stereophonic System

    The method of compatible stereophony described is especially designed for use with the aural channel of a television broadcast system. The make-up of the multiplex signal fed to the aural transmitter includes the use of a high fidelity 50-15,OOO c.p.s. L f R signal for the principal modulation. The L - R information is transmitted by double sideband suppressed subcarrier together with a novel pilot frequency arrangement for use at the receiver for regenerating the subcarrier required for L - R detection. Only one triode is required in the receiver demultiplexer. The stereo audio system is completed by the customary dual audio amplifiers and loudspeakers. View full abstract»

  • A Compatible Stereophonic System for the AM Broadcast Band

    Stereophonic broadcasting presents a variety of problems, including compatibility, out-of-band radiation, stereo performance, distortion, signal-to-noise, receiver tuning, and receiver cost. Possible system solutions can be classified as either ``multiplicative'' or ``additive,'' depending upon whether the quadrature sidebands representative of the stereo information (L-R) are modulated by the envelope information (L+R), or are essentially independent of the envelope information, respectively. The preferred AM-FM system uses a pre-emphasized (L-R) signal to frequency modulate the carrier which is then amplitude modulated with (L+R). Stereophonic field test transmissions over Radio Station WNBC have demonstrated compatibility with existing monophonic receivers and excellent reception on stereophonic receivers of simple design.

  • Power Sources for Low Heater Power Tubes in Transistorized Receivers

    The development of fully transistorized television receivers is now a recognized accomplishment. While the low power demand of the circuitry in such a set has made battery operated receivers practical, the heater power requirement of the cathode-ray-tube becomes a significant portion of the total receiver requirements. It is particularly important in battery operated receivers to maintain low power requirements in order to insure economical operation and reasonable battery cycle time. Further, at the present state of the art in battery development, a 10-15% reduction in current in some receiver designs would permit the use of an Alkaline type battery, rather than a Cadmium type. This results in appreciable savings in the initial battery cost. To this end, cathode-ray-tubes have been developed which operate on a fraction of the previously required power. View full abstract»

    Several papers have been written describing the design and performance of transistorized AM-FM receivers. The purpose of this paper, is to discuss a completely transistorized AM-FM receiver that uses transistors whose characteristics have been optimized and specified for such a set. We will discuss the selection of transistors to be used and describe the receiver circuitry and performance. View full abstract»

  • A New Concept in Citizen's Band Equipment

    The 27 Mc citizen's radio service was established to provide the public with a short range, personal communication facility. It allows the public to realize benefits similar to those provided commercial users of the business services. Whereas, a station in the latter service is licensed for a specific purpose and frequency, the citizen's service provides the user with 23 frequencies and personal use within the scope of the regulations. The market for this type of equipment is essentially a consumer market with over 100,000 licenses issued and 10,000 applications being received by the FCC every month. As with any consumer product, one of the most important problems of the manufacturer is to provide the purchaser with the utmost in performance and conveniences at the lowest possible cost. Another consideration is ease of operation of the equipment. In particular, consideration should be given to young and old of both sexes in that the unit should be simple to operate.

  • A Nuvistor. Low-Noise VHF Tuner

    From the standpoint of improved TV receiver performance, the RCA nuvistor1 electron tube represents a major breakthrough, particularly with respect to features of small size, low noise, low power drain, and greater reliability. In the design assembly and processing of the nuvistor, most of the known causes of tube failure on life have been minimized or eliminated. Figure 1 is a cutaway view which shows the strong ceramic basewafer that supports the small light cylindrical electrodes. The cylindrical electrode structure permits the critical tube elements to be assembled in a simple fixture, thus making possible close-spaced electrode assembly with accuracy and uniformity. The type 6CW4 is a nuvistor tube designed for use in VHF television tuner RF amplifiers. View full abstract»
