    Ruze and Rotman lenses are types of parallel-plate lens which can be used to form multiple beams for antenna arrays. An algebraic analysis is used to relate the different orders of phase aberration to the lens contours, and shows that lenses with zero second- and third-order aberrations can be designed. For a given array length and beam scan angle requirement, the analysis determines the minimum l... View full abstract»

    The ordinary ¿linear detector¿ and the coherent demodulator are briefly discussed as the two extreme cases of demodulators for envelopemodulated signals, since in the former the rectifier (or modulator) is switched by the complete input signal, while in the latter a pure local reference tone is used. The synchrodyne and enhanced-carrier systems are regarded as intermediate cases in which the swi... View full abstract»

    Modern communications systems are increasingly using digital transmission, at various digit rates, for the many advantages thereby obtained. there are many methods that can be used for converting analogue speech signals to digital form. the aim is to produce very good speech quality using simple equipment at a low digit rate, but any application inevitably involves choosing the appropriate comprom...

    Multipliers of two delta-sigma sequences are proposed in this paper. These multipliers are very simple in circuitry and provide the product in delta-sigma sequence form, permitting simple further processing. The multipliers were constructed and their performance was experimentally measured. It was found that a certain type of multiplier with a relatively simple circuitry, provides a high signal to...

    The examination of a suspect transistor to determine its mode of degradation or failure always includes, at an early stage, checks on its junction and transistor characteristics, usually with the aid of a visual display on a curve tracer. This paper discusses the diagnostic significance of some of the abnormalities which may be observed on such displays. View full abstract»

    A digital h.f. multipath propagation simulator is described which can be applied to communications receiver and modulation techniques evaluation and operator training. It can also be applied to a variety of applications in the high-frequency field where programmable and repeatable ionospheric conditions require simulation. Simultaneous communications paths are simulated, four of which exhibit inde... View full abstract»

    Phased array systems provide a number of features which make them particularly suitable for long range, high target density, radar applications such as satellite tracking and space surveillance. These include long-range detection capability, high transmitted power, inertialess electronic beam steering, multiple receiving-beam capability, high reliability and extreme flexibility. Basic principles o... View full abstract»

    The application of electronics to medicine did not follow an expected course of being delayed somewhat upon original technological developments. Instead, apart from specific applications, the subject found no general application until the value of electronics in radar and communications had been clearly demonstrated. Thus the main impetus came with a delay approaching fifty years so that the medic... View full abstract»
