    The installation of an underwater cable connection in Lake Lugano is described. The cable routing, choice of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) as the cable insulation, grounding system, laying methods, protection conduits, cable laying, and accessories are discussed. The submarine described has operated without incident since being placed in service in 1985. The three circuits described, which repr... View full abstract»

    Polyimide resins that have been developed and marketed for semiconductor applications by Japanese companies are reviewed. Test results for devices in which polyimide resins are used as the interlayer insulator, alpha-ray shielding, or buffer coating film are presented. The status of the development of new polyimides for semiconductors is discussed.<> View full abstract»

    The use of dissipation factor as a test to establish the degree of cure of polymers used as dielectric materials in magnet wire coatings is considered. The data used were collected for a sole coat configuration, a single polymer applied in multiple layers. Guidelines are given for incorporating dissipation factor measurement as an inspection tool in magnet wire manufacture.<> View full abstract»

    Chemical compatibility of the components in an insulation system is discussed. The sealed tube test, which is used to determine compatibility, is described. Some factors that produce incompatibility are examined. Compatibility problems for which the sealed-tube test, or any that have been derived from it, is not applicable, are considered.<> View full abstract»
