    The Alaskan earthquake has focused the attention of the world on seismic phenomena. The electronics engineer naturally asks, “Can we use the techniques of radar and seismic sounding to investigate the earth's interior?” Burt Rudman, consultant in AIL's Research and Systems Engineering Division, has been thinking about this problem for some time and we present his thoughts in this advertisement.

    Close-up view of an experimental Flute memory array developed by scientists at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center. The highly compact device is made by molding tiny magnetic ferrite “tubes” over a mesh of fine wires. The name of the array is derived from the flute-like appearance of the individual magnetic tubes. It can store 5000 bits of information. Storage is accomplished by changing the ma... View full abstract»

    Problems of the Printed Word. The Editorial Board in its discussions last year rather quickly became convinced that publications were the major means by which our Institute would carry out its responsibility for individual member advancement, and that the same means were necessary to advancement of the field itself. However, in discussion of policy, the Board did not immediately assume that public... View full abstract»

    This edited version of a 1964 IEEE International Convention symposium covers integrated-circuit types; manufacturing principles; the impact of these circuits in government, industrial, and consumer products; and future trends This Westinghouse array of dual DTL gates is fabricated at a density of approximately 1200 gates per square inch. Each gate performs the NAND function and propagates a logic ... View full abstract»

    The military effect on the progress of integrated circuits has been twofold. First, new technology has developed, some through the direct subsidy of military research and development, and much more through the company-sponsored research stimulated by this support. About $100 million of R & D expenditures escalated from an initial Government expenditure of $2 million. The second effect has been... View full abstract»

    The commercial computer industry accounts for more than half of industrial electronics. Although none of the 1963 production equipment used modular circuits, all manufacturers are exploring their use for high-volume logic applications. The choice of modular circuits or discrete components in new computer design is difficult, and the decision cannot be made by comparing one component approach with ... View full abstract»

    The integrated-circuits man is pre-empted in research and development by either device technologists or circuit engineers. Conversely, research and development in integrated circuitry must cover the entire field of research and development in electronics to keep up with competition's marketing. View full abstract»

    Let us look at what the integrated circuit market probably was in 1963, as shown in Table V. As applied to semiconductor networks, these are EIA numbers — for all other circuits, out best estimate. Research and development contracts are not included. Remember that we are defining integrated circuitry as “The physical realization of a number of circuit elements, inseparably associated on or within ... View full abstract»

    A single-crystal chip of silicon contains both active and passive elements. Parasitic capacitance introduced during monolithic construction and circuit performance can now be analyzed Monolithic integrated circuits derive their name from the fact that the entire integrated circuit is formed in a single-crystal chip of silicon semiconductor. The single-crystal chip technique is a main factor distin... View full abstract»

    Engineering has long been considered not merely a learned profession but also a learning profession — one whose practitioners must first become and then remain students throughout their active years. But concurrent with the explosion in technology characteristic of the past two decades has been an increasing realization that organized programs of a wide variety of types must be made available to s...

    There are many outstanding programs of continuing education for engineers offered by universities. But rather than use these as a basis for discussion, we shall consider the role of the university in continuing education and the principles upon which programs should be based. Industry and the engineering professional societies have important roles in continuing education, but the university must a... View full abstract»

    Technological revolution, information explosion, systems automation, and data retrieval are exciting words to the recent, or soon-to-be, graduate engineer. These are more than words. They are challenging, changing, accelerating, and exhilarating idea-worlds in which a young engineer may contribute and profit. With a foundation of modern mathematics, materials science, systems, and communications —... View full abstract»
