    IEEE, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) are up in arms over a piece of legislation on antitrust and monopoly. Under Title I of S.825, national standards would be placed under the regulatory roof of the Federal Trade Commission while international standards, under Title II, would be controlled by the Department of Commerce...

  • Spectral lines: ‘Universal solvent’ or universal problem

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):27 - 28
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5728 KB)

    This column will comment at random on a commodity most of us used to take for granted, and one that some of us still do: water. In an earlier “Spectral lines” (“Water over the dam,” Feb.), we discussed David Lilienthal's proposal to harness many of the smaller U.S. streams and canals in order to generate electricity on a local level. (It would be “peanuts,” one of Lilienthal's critics said.) Some ... View full abstract»

  • I2L: Coexistence with NMOS

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):33 - 34
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1054 KB)

    Fairchild has applied dielectric-isolation techniques to I2L and come up with a speed- and density-enhancing version called Isoplanar integrated-injection logic, or I3L. This paper describes this latest development and compares it to the traditional I2L. View full abstract»

  • I2L: Rugged and reliable

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s): 34

    Why would a manufacturer producing only MOS circuits suddenly decide to invest heavily in the relatively new bipolar technology of I2L? In General Instrument's case, the answer lies in the company's special interest in the consumer and telecommunications marketplaces. I2L promises to provide greater performance and reliability than existing LSI technologies, including n-chann... View full abstract»

  • I2L: Complementing Schottky TTL

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s): 35
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (239 KB)

    In the important area of high-speed digital LSI circuits, I2L represents a higher-density complement to low-power Schottky-TTL technology. Functions requiring a circuit complexity of 500 gates or less probably could be produced economically by use of a standard low-power Schottky process. But for greater-complexity chips that operate over −55 to +125°C, I2L is needed. View full abstract»
