    In a two-interval forced-choice (2 IFC) audiometric test the observer has to decide which of the two intervals contains an auditory stimulus. The paper discusses the basic design philosophy and principle of operation of a hard-wired experimental facility for automatically locating specific points on the psychometric function for this type of test. Variable intervals and stimuli frequencies and mea... View full abstract»

    Linear segment approximation to a sine wave is almost exclusively used in the modern function generator signal source. This paper offers an in-depth treatment of the question of breakpoint selection. Computer-aided analysis is used to obtain required data for design purposes according to two criteria of minimizing either the number of harmonics or the total harmonic distortion by appropriate posit...

    The advent of microprocessors has produced an unprecedented need for greater software productivity and reliability. The paper describes a microcomputer application development environment, based on a central minicomputer, which has been designed to aid the production and testing of microprocessor software. The main objectives of the design have been : to minimize microprocessor dependence; to cent... View full abstract»

    It is shown that the output from a rate multiplier can control the long-term stability of a voltage-controlled oscillator, without any adverse effects on its spectral purity. This is mainly achieved by using a special digital frequency-detector with a dead band. It is now possible to convert a simple local oscillator for an r.f. receiver to afrequency synthesizer by adding a few integrated circuit... View full abstract»

    A new mode of diversity transmission is described which largely overcomes problems of multipath fading for the outgoing path in land mobile radio. The technique can be applied in many forms, depending on the type of modulation used. Trials with data transmissions have shown two orders of magnitude reduction in error rates as compared with conventional transmission. The system is compatible with qu... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

Published from 1963 to February 1964 by the British Institution of Radio Engineers and from March 1964 to 1984 by the the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers, The Radio and Electronic Engineer published papers describing original research and development in all branches of electronic engineering, as well as critical and interpretive surveys. Short contributions dealing with device technology, circuit techniques and experimental methods were also included.
