    A threshold gate has binary inputs and outputs just like any other logic gate. The difference, however, is that in the threshold gate the inputs may be weighted and, eventually, a binary decision made as to whether the total weight is more or less than some reference. This principle of weighting and summing the inputs rather than simply noting the presence of all inputs as high (as in an AND gate)... View full abstract»

    In the last few years, semiconductor random-access memory (RAM) components have been introduced into high-speed scratchpad applications and small buffer memory systems, where the performance or cost advantage of semiconductor components is greatest. More recently, developments in the technology of large-scale integrated (LSI) circuits have resulted in cost-performance characteristics of semiconduc... View full abstract»

    The electric power industry faces a dilemmaߞthe need to supply ever-increasing quantities of electric energy and power vital to mankind and, at the same time, to control pollution of the environment to viable limits. This subjectߞthe great environmental debate and the power industryߞwas discussed at a special session during the 1970 IEEE Summer Power Meeting and EHV Conference by a panel of expert...

    This survey reviews the current state of automation in the testing of electronic components, networks, and circuits. Elements and characteristics of typical test sytems, both hardware-controlled and computer-controlled, are described. Paths to be followed and pitfalls to be avoided in achieving automation are discussed in an effort to help the reader toward a better understanding of the subject an... View full abstract»

    This two-part article discusses the use of operational amplifiers in applications involving both digital and analog signals. In some cases the digital signals are used to control the acquisition of samples of analog signals. In other applications the digital signal is being converted into an analog voltage or, conversely, an analog is converted to a series of digital words. This first installment ... View full abstract»
