    In order to exploit the technological promises of microelectronics, electronic system techniques must be developed so that defective portions of a system can be tolerated without system malfunction. Such defects might be introduced during manufacture (at birth), or cause errors during operation (life). The number of permanent failures which could be endured by a system before it fails completely w... View full abstract»

    Circuit design predicated solely upon the premise of providing circuits with greater and greater immunity against component tolerances at some point results in an increase in catastrophic failure rates. Thus, circuits which are overdesigned to provide maximum protection against drift failures may actually contribute to a lower system reliability than do those circuits which are designed to operate...

  • Power Dissipation in Microelectronic Transmission Circuits

    The interrelationship of power dissipation, gain, stability, terminal impedance values, dynamic range and efficiency is investigated for small-signal amplifiers in the middle range of frequencies. Utilizing a novel circuit-design theory which treats a transistor along with its biasing resistors as a single entity, amplifier designs are derived which combine optimum ac performance and minimum dc po...

  • A Thermal Design Approach for Solid-State Encapsulated High-Density Computer Circuits

    Publication Year: 1961 , Page(s): 216 - 226
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2061 KB)  

    This paper considers the thermal problems associated with the design of high component-density encapsulated circuits, constructed with small solid-state components. The thermal resistance to the dissipation of component-generated heat is shown to consist of that of the encapsulating medium, plus that of the external circuit cooling process. Because the external cooling becomes more difficult as th... View full abstract»

    The necessity to hybridize newer microcircuitry techniques with existing design capabilities to achieve efficient equipment designs is established. An analysis is presented of the net size and weight advantages calculated for several components of a typical weapons system, as first the micromodule and then, progressively, thin-film and solid-circuit techniques are integrated into the system design...

    A variety of approaches to microminiaturization is now being widely explored by electronic systems designers. Among the approaches taken, continued reliance is being placed upon discrete active components that can be used in module, welded, thin-film, or hybrid types of microcircuits. By the use of discrete elements, maximum circuit flexibility is retained, tight component tolerances are possible,... View full abstract»

  • Inductive Semiconductor Elements and Their Application in Bandpass Amplifiers

    Filter circuits using wire-wound inductors are hard to microminiaturize because coils are rather bulky. This paper discusses different inductive semiconductor devices which may replace coils where space is a problem. Forward-biased diodes, properly designed, behave like very lossy inductances. Combining them with negative-resistance devices increases the Q but creates serious temperature and stabi... View full abstract»

    Plastic encapsulation of nonlinear ferrites, and the effect of this encapsulation on the magnetic characteristics of the ferrites, is discussed in this paper. This technique provides greater immunity to shock and vibration damage than conventional core frames and provides bit densities in excess of one million per cubic foot. Chemical deposition and photographic techniques may be used to form a po... View full abstract»

    The MIST module is a proposed building block for electronic telemetry systems for use with weather balloons, providing a minimum hazard to fast-flying aircraft. This electronic telemetry system may be spread in two dimensions while having a minimum build-up or structure in the third dimension. Minimum STructure modules (MIST modules) are a proposed answer to such a requirement. MIST modules have b... View full abstract»
