    The paper examines some of the classes of microwave devices which are of current interest. Devices described are: frequency multipliers, up-converters, parametric amplifiers, tunnel diodes, backward diodes, hot electron devices and Gunn effect oscillators. Some of the problems and developments which the future may hold are discussed. View full abstract»

  • A subjective investigation of some errors in the chrominance signal decoding circuits of colour television receivers

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):345 - 357

    This paper describes some experimental work in which the visual effects of incorrect decoding of the chrominance signals in colour television receivers were assessed by panels of observers. There are difficulties in changing circuit parameters in an actual receiver during a viewing session to simulate decoding errors. Apparatus was therefore constructed to produce exactly similar effects to those ... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of varactor multipliers with idlers

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):359 - 367

    A large-signal analysis of varactor harmonic generators with idlers is presented. The analysis is valid for both abrupt junction and graded junction varactors and any value of Q-factor. Numerical results are given for the cases of triplers and quadruplers operating with a second harmonic idler. The analysis uses a Fourier expansion for the voltage across the varactor in terms of the currents flowi... View full abstract»

  • Parametric travelling-wave amplification along three transmission lines coupled by diode quartets

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):368 - 372
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (695 KB)

    Each of the three waves (pump, signal, and idler) is transmitted along an independent line of appropriate characteristic impedance coupled only by equidistant reactance-diode quartets. Such a quad is composed of four diodes mounted in one plane perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation and connected as a ring-type modulator. The three transmission lines consist of a rectangular waveguide ... View full abstract»

  • Capacitors - reliability, life and the relevance of circuit design

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):373 - 384
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1132 KB)

    Capacitors are made with a wide range of materials to achieve specific types of performance. Their reliability is a function of the voltage and temperature operating conditions of the dielectric and the climatic and mechanical environmental conditions of the encapsulation. About one-seventh of all equipment failures are due to capacitors and half of these are due to improper selection or applicati... View full abstract»
