    FM radio receiver sales have more than tripled since 1960, according to the Electronic Industries Association. An increase of 40 percent above 1964 sales is expected by the end of 1966. The EIA statistics, which include domestic and foreign sets, show that one out of every four home radios sold in 1964 could receive FM. View full abstract»

    The availability of increasingly fast semiconductor devices is continuously opening up new fields of application. Those fields, in turn, stimulate the device designer to increase the speed of these devices even further. The circuit engineer who is working at this speed frontier is faced with the problem of always utilizing the presently available elements to the limit of their capabilities. View full abstract»

    In reviewing the state of the automatic control art in a given field of application, it seems appropriate first to take note of progress in the field itself. Changes in process techniques or objectives define new requirements and opportunities for advances in control concepts and equipment. Accordingly, this survey article will endeavor to “close the gap” between theory and practice by doing three... View full abstract»

    The determination of the axial rotational rate of Venus has long been an objective of planetary astronomers. It may be surprising to learn that we know the rotational period of all the planets in the solar system, even the most distant planet Pluto, with the exception of the planet that comes nearest to us, Venus! This anomaly fundamentally arose for two reasons: (1) Venus is shrouded with a thick... View full abstract»

    The importance of the internal memory in computers cannot be overemphasized. The very fact that all information as to what to do, how to do it, and on what data to do it is in memory makes the computer a general processor that can be adapted to any specific task. The universality of the computer has extended its usefulness to practically all activities of men. View full abstract»

    For many years a professor of mathematics and electrical engineering, as well as consultant, Dr. Daniel Noble, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Motorola, Inc., is one of those unusual men who at the right time turned his intellectual capacities to the successful direction of what has become a major and revolutionary new industry — that which has grown out of solid-state electronics. He is now respons... View full abstract»
