  • Strategy and tactics for integrated electronics

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):26 - 33
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (7115 KB)

    The rate of technological innovation has been increasing dramatically in recent years, and so has the risk that a given technology may become obsolete before innovation is complete. Thus, tactical choices must be made on the basis of long-term goals. Probably nowhere is this problem more complex than in the move toward integrated electronics. By way of example, this article describes how the ``ada... View full abstract»

    To many executives and practicing engineers, the turmoil in the universities has been a bewildering phenomenon. At the Fourth of March meeting at M.I.T. to protest the misuse of science and engineering (IEEE Spectrum, April 1969, p. 8), Professor George Wald of Harvard¿notable for his undergraduate teaching as well as for the research on vision that brought him a Nobel Prize¿addressed the questi...

  • The energy outlook for the United States

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3435 KB)

    In addition to reporting on prevailing trends in U.S. energy production and consumption, this article makes a number of statements concerning the outlook for the future. For example, the growth of underground distribution and control over the sulfur content of fuels and stack emissions may possibly halt or reverse the long-term downtrend in the cost of electricity. Although nuclear power is beginn... View full abstract»

  • The emergence of the technician engineer in electrical and electronic engineering

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):46 - 51
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4147 KB)

    For many years Britain's electrical and electronic engineering industry had been perplexed over the ``technician problem'': what acceptable title might be found for those senior engineering personnel to whom the generic term Technician was unacceptable, because of their training, experience and functions as engineers. This article surveys the current situation and traces the events leading to the ... View full abstract»

  • A double phase-sensitive detector for bridge balancing

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):62 - 70
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3812 KB)

    The general considerations involved in the design of low-frequency phase-sensitive detectors are reviewed. These include the equivalence of multiplier- and gating-type detectors, of pre- and postdetection filtering with regard to both signal and noise, and of half- and full-wave detection. The various configurations of full-wave chopper circuits using similar or complementary bipolar transistors a... View full abstract»

    The importance of computers and simulation in management planning is reflected in this article describing a model of a hypothetical, investor-owned electric utility company. The model, which consists of three interrelated digital computer programs¿an economic simulation, a cost simulation (based on power generation expenses), and an auxiliary nuclear fuel management program¿is designed as a tota...
