    The system idea¿solution of a complete problem in its full environment by systematic assembly and matching of parts to solve the whole problem in the context of the lifetime use of the system, considering all aspects¿is one of the most important ideas of modern times. It has made possible the solution of complicated problems that previously could not be touched. However, there exists a rising ti... View full abstract»

  • The art of building LSIs

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):29 - 36
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (9630 KB)

    Today solid-state technology has improved to such a degree that very large IC chips are being made with yields up to 30 percent. This article highlights some of the main elements that determine whether LSIs can be manufactured in large quantities. The author claims that obtaining reasonable yields is readily achievable once the factors that stand out as deterrents to success are recognized. Previo... View full abstract»

  • The future of UHV transmission lines

    In predicting the future of UHV transmission lines, the author has followed a twofold approach. First, a quantitative analysis is made of the characteristics of future UHV lines, as conceived in the light of present-day techniques. Second, new solutions considered particularly suitable for UHV lines are discussed. Two basic assumptions are made: (1) that the need to transmit ever-greater quantitie... View full abstract»

  • An introduction to synthetic-aperture radar

    One way of achieving fine-resolution terrain imagery using airborne, side-looking radar is to boost frequency; another is to decrease along-track tracking. Neither is attractive. But they would have had to do were it not for coherent wave radar¿upon which synthetic-aperture radar is premised. Using coherent radar, resolution can depend, not on the width of the beam, but on Doppler frequency shift... View full abstract»

    When computers were yet in their infancy, some experts fancied them to be??much as they fancied humans were??structurable to develop intelligence on their own. It has since been learned that the mind is not developed with the spontaneity originally conjectured and that computers are not wont to ``bootstrap'' their way to higher levels of intelligence. The computer, if it is to adapt to new situati... View full abstract»

  • The CRT in phototypesetting systems

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):75 - 80

    Rapidity and flexibility in photo-offset printing are synonymous with computer-driven CRTs. Yet, designing such a system has its problems. One big consideration is beam deflection linearity. Another is resolution. Reproduction accuracy resolved, design alternatives remain: Should the CRT be step-scanned or scanned continuously (as for television)? How much of the tube should be used? What should t... View full abstract»
