    Your friends and neighbors may think of you as an engineer, you may have practiced engineering for several or even dozens of years, and you may hold one or more degrees in engineering. Yet legislation in effect or under consideration in some states of the U.S. could make the use of several engineering titles, including, specifically, that of "electrical engineer" illegal except for those persons r...

  • Careers: EEs' salaries: Up but down: Returns from IEEE's 1975 U.S. member survey suggest that you may or may not be better off today than you were in 1972

    According to nearly 50 0(K) returns from the latest IEEE membership survey, although most of the members are working (1.7 percent of the Institute's U.S. members reported that they were involuntarily unemployed), many are working for less “real” money. To update membership statistics derived from surveys conducted in 1972 and 1973, IEEE mailed out 112 707 questionnaires, to U.S. members only, betw... View full abstract»

  • Britannia rides the rails

    Great Britain is coal country. And the logic in rail transportation, from the beginning, was steam. Consequently, one of the first European nations to operate a rail system became one of the last to go electric. But once it decided `to make the switch'-which was not until after World War II-its program of mainline electrification was as rapid as its high-speed trains and, today, the British system...

  • Special report: Gov. Shapp on what's wrong with rail transportation: An EE turned successful politician suspects a conspiracy of rail interests in the U.S. against business and the public

    Milton J. Shapp, Governor of the State of Pennsylvania, thinks the Rail Reorganization Act — a Federal program, currently before Congress, ostensibly intended to rehabilitate the deteriorating rail network in the northeastern United States — may be a conspiracy on the part of the financially sound western railroads to “pick up” profitable eastern mainline business “at the expense of the less well-...

  • New product applications: Two-chip, eight-bit microprocessor is I/O oriented to minimize external parts requirements

    Called the F8, this n-channel microprocessor is aimed at applications that encompass over 80 percent of the available microprocessor market. In the minimum two-chip system, each of the CPU and program-storage-unit (PSU) chips provide two 8-bit bidirectional I/O ports, resulting in a total of 32 available I/O bits. This allows the two-chip system to accommodate directly I/O devices such as keyboard... View full abstract»

    This 20-page applications note explains the significant characteristics of Bessel and Butterworth low-pass filters. The responses of linear-phase (Bessel) filters are described in terms of polynomial functions, graphs, and tables of characteristics. Similar treatment is given to maximally flat amplitude (Butterworth) low-pass filters. View full abstract»
