    For pt.2 see ibid., no.1, p.23-30 (Feb. 1993). After surveying the methods of delivering CPD, this final part deals with the recording of CPD, from a simple diary logbook record to more sophisticated portfolio requirements and outlines various approaches to achieving a necessary balance in the activities undertaken. There is a rapidly developing need to support CPD with both administrative and efficient delivery resources View full abstract»

    The achievements of Alexander Bain are relatively unknown. Bain was born and died in near poverty; yet in the early 1850s telegraph lines exploiting his electric telegraph patent were in operation in the United States in competition with those of Morse. Besides inventions in the field of electric telegraphy Bain was the first person to construct an electromagnetic clock and to devise a facsimile transmission system View full abstract»

    The ease with which molten solder wets and spreads on the appropriate metallic surfaces of electronic component assemblies during the manufacturing process is referred to broadly as the solderability of the component or printed circuit board. Two needs are evident: a traceable solderability measurement method giving reproducible data that predict process performance, and an agreed level of solderability which, for a given manufacturing process, will deliver an acceptably robust solder joint. This paper describes briefly present understanding of the mechanisms that govern solderability and the measurement methods most likely to prove acceptable to the electronics assembly industry View full abstract»

    The ever increasing development and marketing of lamps has imposed a greater need upon the lighting designer to understand the different operating characteristics of these various lamps and their application in lighting designs. Luminous efficacy must be treated with great care when used to compare light sources of different types, as it conveys no information about variation of light output with age, colour appearance, colour rendering, mortality or flexibility of control View full abstract»
