    The Proceedings of the IEEE, it should be remembered, is the offspring (some would say continuation) of the Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, a journal which, during the history of IRE, served as its core publication. Today, Proceedings retains many of the traditional characteristics of Proceedings of the IRE, yet differs in important ways. In particular, it is available to members ... View full abstract»

  • Instrumentation: Automatic test systems: Seven basic elements make up the ideal ATS; neglect of any one is an invitation to disaster

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):44 - 52
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1743 KB)

    The authors consider the seven basic elements: data base of circuit descriptions; means of circuit simulation; method of test generation; a language with which to command a piece of automatic test equipment to carry out tests and a library of programs in this language; automatic test equipment; a diagnostic method; and some scheme for managing the mass of data. The application to design verificati... View full abstract»

    The fax broadcasting venture of the '30s and the '40s (described in detail by Daniel M. Costigan in the accompanying article) was but one of the many faces facsimile communication has shown in its long and somewhat capricious history. It assumed its present role as a standard business communications tool in 1962, with the official opening of the telephone dial network (via appropriate interfaces) ... View full abstract»

    Gasoline, heating oil, and electric bills in recent months all testify to the inflationary effect of unchecked demand on limited supply. Short-term, workable solutions to the problem seem tangled in a web of expert opinion. Scientists argue the merits of nuclear fusion, solar power derived from synchronous satellites, or the hydrogen economy. Environmentalists champion austerity, conservation, and...
