    A brief survey of some tunnel diode storage systems is presented and a description of a particular system with a non-destructive read-out feature is given. The design of this system is discussed in some detail, and an assessment of the operating margins is included. In a unit of 128 words of 24 digits per word a read access time of 150 m¿s is indicated with a read cycle time of 250 m¿s. The writ... View full abstract»

  • The development of eddy-current testing techniques for tube inspection

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):373 - 382
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1892 KB)

    The paper outlines the need for a high speed method of examining tubes for defects and discusses to what extent eddy-current techniques meet this need. A short history is given of the introduction of eddy current testing used for the examination of solid and hollow cylinders. Eddy current testing principles are explained, together with methods of measuring the effects of variations in a test speci... View full abstract»

  • A new poly-anode counting tube, the 'Polyatron'

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):383 - 388
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1142 KB)

    A new type of gas-filled counting tube has been developed. This tube contains a common cathode with many anodes around it, differing from the dekatron of conventional type. It may be driven by small input pulses of amplitude about one-half as large as that of a conventional type. It can drive the number display tube without any intermediate device, and is expected to have higher reliability. The p... View full abstract»

    Electronic process control systems have overcome the transmission limitations of conventional pneumatic equipment for centralized control, and have facilitated the application of electronic data logging and computational procedures. Product quality is the key parameter in refinery operations and continuous analysers have been developed to overcome the limitations of conventional laboratory testing... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a method of extracting automatically the range and bearing of point source echoes in the video signals from a twodimensional radar (i.e. a radar scanning in range and bearing, or elevation, but not both), employing a digital ferrite core store for the necessary video storage. Attention is drawn to the flexibility of such a storage medium, together with a brief description of t... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the operational tasks which will have to be carried out by a radar data handling system associated with an air traffic control centre¿for example track initiation and prediction, data link interpretation, compilation of the air situation, aircraft control and safety, etc. Based on these considerations, the specification of a computer to perform these functions is discussed.

  • A series type d.c. negative resistance for analogue computers

    Negative resistances are only conditionally stable, the shunt type when connected to a positive resistance of a smaller value and the series type when the load resistance is larger. Hence, in general, in an electrical resistance analogue, both series and shunt types of negative resistance will be required. Methods of obtaining these two types of negative resistance for operation at both d.c. and a... View full abstract»

    To provide the designer of digital circuits with the potential of a recently developed class of micro-system structures, consisting of thin films of resistance plated on a dielectricsubstrate, the transient behaviour of these components was investigated analytically and experimentally. A survey was made of alternative approaches for computing the transient response. For arbitrarytermination and dr... View full abstract»
