    Recent advances in the technology of medium and large scale integrated circuits (m.s.i. and l.s.i.) have made possible economical hardware implementations for real-time digital filtering. A flexible design approach for such implementations is presented. The processing mode can be varied to give any hybrid structure between the purely serial and parallel realizations. This leads to a design approac... View full abstract»

    A new generalized model for atmospheric radio noise is briefly described and justified by comparison with observed probability distributions. A special case of this generalized model is then compared to the observed noise statistics at the very low frequency end of the spectrum. This model is then applied to the detection of known signals in in the presence of noise to determine the optimal receiv... View full abstract»

    The charge-coupled device is essentially a sampled-data, analogue shift register which permits many signal processing functions to be implemented in analogue form. This paper reviews the development of these devices for communication, radar and sonar applications, and summarizes the advantages of the charge-coupled concept over digital techniques View full abstract»

  • The synthesis of ladder networks with resistances at both ends by the recurrent-continuant method

    The recurrent-continuant method of synthesizing a ladder network due to Holbrook is limited to the lossless quadrupoles terminated in resistance at only one end. The technique has been modified to cover the general class of lossless quadrupoles terminated in resistances at both the ends. The proposed synthesis procedure starts with a given realizable polynomial which is separated into two realizab... View full abstract»
