    Silicon-gate technology provides an advantageous approach for implementing large-scale integrated arrays of field-effect transistors. Its advantages¿principally resulting from the low threshold voltage and the self-aligned gate structure buried under an insulator¿ease the problem of interfacing these circuits to bipolar integrated circuits and increase both their performance and functional densi...

  • Space explorationߞwisdom or folly?

    Many of man's greatest technological achievements were greeted with disdain, if not ridiculed, at the time of their inception. Today there are many critics of our space program¿the noted British historian Arnold Toynbee among them¿who believe that space exploration represents a technological dead end, an enormous waste of money, and a force that promotes increased nationalism.

  • Acoustooptical approaches to radar signal processing

    To realize full benefit from a radar, the analyzed echoes must be strong and sharp. Two options are available: Either the transmitted burst must be an intense, short pulse (often not a propitious arrangement) or the onus can be put on the receiver to process the echo into something more than it appears to be. One method for ``upgrading'' the received signal beyond a feeble echo from a not-too-powe... View full abstract»

    This article focuses on the conversion and control of large blocks of electric energy by solid-state power devices such as silicon rectifier diodes and thyristors. Power conversion fulfills the important requirement of delivering a desired type of electric energy when the available form is unsuitable. Examples include the energization of dc machines, dc fields, and batteries when the available sou... View full abstract»

  • Art and technology: a merger of disciplines

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):60 - 68
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (8817 KB)

    The successful alliance of art and technology is hardly a novel concept; it has been practiced for centuries, from antiquity, through the Renaissance, to the present day. Historically, the collaborative efforts of artists, artisans, engineers, and builders have been predicated upon the exacting criteria of the respective trades and professions: the integrity of achievement that demands order, logi...

  • Thick films or thin?

    It is sometimes difficult to decide between thick-film and thin-film technologies in the fabrication of hybrid integrated circuits consisting of a ceramic substrate with deposited passive components and attached active devices. In the case of thick films, the deposited pattern of conductors, resistors, capacitors, and inductors is applied to the substrate by screen-printing and firing special cond... View full abstract»
