    As transistors become available which are comparable with tubes with respect to gain and noise factor at vhf, an evaluation is necessary to establish their performance with respect to cross modulation and modulation distortion. This paper discusses cross modulation and modulation distortion measurements on available r-f transistors. View full abstract»

  • Gamma Distortion in the Monochrome TV System

    Publication Year: 1962 , Page(s): 21 - 30

    Television pictures commonly exhibit non-uniform gamma or gamma distortion and several factors are involved at the transmitter and receiver, including an indefinite transfer standard. Some stations have a linear transfer of brightness to video modulation, others have a square root curve, but as far as is known none is modulating logarithmically as tentatively specified under the FCC Standards.

  • Transistor Failure Modes in High Power Switching Operation

    Publication Year: 1962 , Page(s): 35 - 39
    Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1047 KB)  

    It is desirable to use power transistors as switches up to their maximum collector-emitter voltage capability (BVcex). In this type operation, failure phenomena during switch-off have been observed and attributed in the literature to second breakdown, punch through, reach through, pinch off, and various types of energy level effects.

  • Ferrite Antennas for A.M. Broadcast Receivers

    Publication Year: 1962 , Page(s): 50 - 59
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1497 KB)  

    The design of a broadcast receiver requires consideration of the type of antenna to be used such that the best performance of the system is maintained. In the past, the use of a built-in air loop antenna was common in the design of home receivers and some portables. However, the effectiveness of this type of antenna decreases with its decrease in dimensions. Today, with the widespread use of trans... View full abstract»

    A stereophonic system for television sound having some unique characteristics is described. The L + R information is transmitted as ordinary low frequency signals while the L - R information is transmitted by frequency division multiplex by a method that may be characterized by the absence of a pilot carrier or residual subcarrier in the transmission of the signal and by there being no requirement...

    Commercial FM broadcast-band vacuum-tube receivers have been with us for many years. Generally they have been of the relatively expensive, high-fidelity, entertainment type. However, with the advent of competitive transistors having VHF capabilities, the FM receiver market has been considerably expanded. Our country alone saw the birth of 173 new FM transmitting stations in the last sixteen months... View full abstract»

    OTL Power Amplifiers (See figure 1.) The basic types of configuration evolve around either complementary pairs, or the full or half-bridge configuration. The complementary circuit requires a split power supply and matched PNP-NPN power transistors. The practicalities in procuring germanium pairs in reasonably high power ratings exclude this circuit from consideration for the high-fidelity audio am... View full abstract»

    There has been extensive publicity in recent years concerning radical changes anticipated for electronic components. Predications have been made that existing conventional components will soon be replaced with new solid state devices, thin film integrated circuits, and moletronic functional blocks.

    This paper is an attempt to derive just what kind of an age characteristic can be expected of a particular design and why this is obtained. To do this the paper examines the processes used for agc in transistor broadcast receivers, their limitations, their application to typical receivers, the results obtained and the various circuits that can be used to develop the age.
