  • A P-N-P Triode Alloy-Junction Transistor for Radio-Frequency Amplification

    The performance of alloy-junction transistors falls off as the frequency increases. Heretofore, the chief cause of this has been the resistance-capacitance low-pass filter effect in the base-emitter input. The effect is produced by the germanium resistance (between the external base connection and the active junction region) and the emitter-to-base diffusion capacitance. The latter may be extraord...

    This paper describes an audio-frequency oscillator using two junction transistors in push-pull Class C operation. The circuit features an over-all efficiency as high as 75 per cent, low distortion, signal-to-noise ratio better than 100 db, and a high degree of amplitude stability. The amplitude can be held to the order of one per cent over wide ranges of supply voltage, output loading, and tempera... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the application of the principles presently employed in the design of directional antennas for the Standard Broadcast band to the control of radiation from TV transmitting antennas in order that optimum use is made of the energy radiated from such antennas. Until very recently TV antennas were designed primarily to concentrate the radiated energy in the direction of the horiz... View full abstract»

  • Low-Temperature Electronics

    Considering potential practical applications of low-temperature phenomena, a general survey is made of the temperature dependence of noise and electrical resistance down to the region of Absolute Zero. It is shown that the signal-to-noise ratio in a metallic resistor can be increased by lowering its temperature, while cooling has little effect on carbon resistors. The theory of electrical conducta... View full abstract»

    Factors affecting the useful life of transistors are discussed. From consideration of their structure, long life might well be expected, and has been shown to occur for usual laboratory conditions. However, under high humidity or high temperature, life is sometimes greatly shortened. Mechanisms of the effects are described. Corrective measures are under way. View full abstract»

  • Resistivity Measurements on Germanium for Transistors

    This paper discusses a laboratory method which has been found very useful for measuring the resistivity of the semiconductor germanium. The method consists of placing four probes that make contact along a line on the surface of the material. Current is passed through the outer pair of probes and the floating potential is measured across the inner pair. There are seven cases considered, the probes ... View full abstract»

  • A General RLC Synthesis Procedure

    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1635 KB)

    Any physically realizable RLC transfer function-impedance, admittance, or dimensionless ratio-can be realized within a multiplicative constant by the synthesis procedures presented in this paper. The form of network achieved is a lattice with these significant features: (a) it may have any desirable termination; (b) it contains no mutual inductance; (c) every inductance in the network appears with...

  • Normalized Phase and Gain Derivatives as an Aid in Evaluation of FM Distortion

    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Second and third order harmonic distortions are evaluated which are generated in a network of known transfer functions when subjected to an undistorted FM input signal. From the general Carson and Fry formula for the response of the network, both quasi-stationary and nonquasi-stationary terms can be evaluated with the aid of normalized derivatives of the gain and phase function of the network. The... View full abstract»

  • A Comparison of Amplitude and Angle Modulation for Narrow-Band Communication of Binary-Coded Messages in Fluctuation Noise

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1422 KB)

    Frequency-shift, phase-shift, and on-off amplitude modulation are examined as mechanisms. Curves of fractional error as a function of average carrier-to-noise ratio are derived for fading and non-fading carriers. The results are applicable to telegraph, teletype, and other binary-coded signals. View full abstract»

  • A General Tchebycheff Rational Function

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s):454 - 457

    The principal result of this paper is the derivation of a general rational function having arbitrary poles which approximates zero with a Tchebycheff characteristic. It is shown how this function can be used to obtain transfer functions which possess a Tchebycheff, low-pass filter characteristic and for which either the poles or zeros are arbitrary. Two applications for this function are given: (1... View full abstract»

  • Frequency Analysis of Digital Computers Operating in Real Time

    When used in a control system, the digital computer operates in real time and interacts dynamically with other parts of the system. It is desirable to examine its effect by the use of conventional techniques of servo-mechanism design, namely, frequency analysis. An important feature of most digital computers is that the data passing through them are in sampled form. Frequency analysis has already ... View full abstract»

    Any transfer function, in order to be physically realizable as a lossless coupling network terminated in a single resistance, must have an even or odd polynomial as its numerator. Such a function, representing a transfer admittance, a transfer voltage ratio, or a transfer impedance, can be realized by the method of this paper as a lossless lattice network terminated in resistance and possessing no...

    Measurement procedures based upon Weissfloch's separation of a dissipative network into lossy and lossless portions are presented for the determination of the equivalent circuit parameters of dissipative four-terminal structures. The methods are developed around "distance invariant" equivalent networks which possess a number of desirable features in addition to permitting a simplification in the n... View full abstract»
