Abstract:

Aerospace electronic equipment must be capable of high performance reliability coupled with small size and low weight. To investigate and apply techniques of microminiaturization to circuits designed for high reliability performance, a two-phase study was initiated 1 to develop ultra-reliability design techniques in communication equipment, and 2 to microminiaturize the resulting circuits. A summary is presented of data gathered and experience gained while microminiaturizing major portions of an ultrareliable UHF communications receiver. Information and instructions were compiled to guide transistor circuit engineers in designing semiconductor circuits that lend themselves to microminiaturization. Examples are cited and design approaches are delineated. As a demonstration of microminiaturization capabilities, a wide band video amplifier, receiver redundant 60-mc IF circuits, automatic gain control circuits, and UHF power amplifier and double circuits were built, tested and delivered.
