Designing with Analog Switches

Steve Moore
January 07, 1991

A practical guide for design engineers especially those involved with digital/analog interfaces to how analog switches and multiplexers work, how to design with them, and how to select the best device for a particular application. Circuit diagrams illustrate the best applications in terms of the sys...

Contamination Effects on Electronic Products

January 07, 1991

The technology for preventing and mitigating contamination of electronic products is reviewed in four major ways: the types and sources of contaminants; typical contamination effects; contamination removal methods; and contamination prevention through design, process, product protection, and testing...

KDP - Family Single Crystals

L.N Rashkovich
January 01, 1991

The KDP family of single crystals is composed of compounds of alkali metals with light or heavy (hydro, deutero) water and oxides of phosphate or arsenate, including ammonium, potassium, rubidium and caesium dihydro- and dideutero-phosphates, and similar arsenates. While not occurring in nature,...

SQUIDs, the Josephson Effects and Superconducting Electronics

J.C Gallop
January 01, 1991

The science of superconducting electronics was first developed over forty years ago, fifty years after the discovery of superconductivity. Since then, a wide range of applications has emerged, and more are envisaged within this ever expanding and exciting field. SQUIDs, the Josephson Effects and...

Uncertainty, Calibration and Probability: The Statistics of Scientific and Industrial Measurement

C.F Dietrich
January 01, 1991

All measurements are subject to error because no quantity can be known exactly; hence, any measurement has a probability of lying within a certain range. The more precise the measurement, the smaller the range of uncertainty. Uncertainty, Calibration and Probability is a comprehensive treatment of...

D(X) Centres and other Metastable Defects in Semiconductors, Proceedings of the INT Symposium, Mauterndorf, Austria, 18-22 February 1991

W. Jantsch, R.A. Stradling
January 01, 1991

Since the first reports on metastable defects in III-V and II-VI compound semiconductors appeared in the late 1960s, the number of reports on defects with metastable states has been growing at an ever increasing rate. D(X)-center and other metastability defects cause many technical problems that...

Echoes of War: The Story of H2S Radar

Bernard Sir Lovell
January 01, 1991

August 1939 was a time of great flux. The fear of impending war fueled by the aggression of Nazi Germany forced many changes. Young people pursuing academic research were plunged into an entirely different kind of research and development. For Bernard Lovell, the war meant involvement in one of the...

Optical Components, Techniques, and Systems in Engineering

December 18, 1990

Presents optical techniques and measurement procedures, providing basic background information on optics and lasers, their components and basic systems. Contains information on thermal and laser sources, detectors, and recording materials, semi-conductor laser diodes, and optical techniques such as...

Pressure Sensors: Selection and Application

Duane Tandeske
November 19, 1990

This practical handbook provides the knowledge needed to specify and apply the best piezoresistive pressure sensors to interface with microprocessors and computers. Eliminating the details of semiconductor physics, it clarifies the three kinds of pressure measurement, explains silicon sensor design...
