The effort during this quarter was primarily directed toward the design of compatible circuit techniques and structures for integrated circuits. Review of the Read Amplifier require ments were made, circuit designs considered and evaluated. Following contemporary circuit practice but applicable to parasitic parameters found in the integrated circuit construction, a satisfactory design for the Read Amplifier was found. Breadboard tests using components simulating the integrated circuit parameters indicate gain-bandwidth products approaching f sub t of the bipolar transistor are realizable. Processing work on all phases of integrated circuit fabrication was carried out. New techniques in this area include investigation of small structure fabrication for diffused components, and the Insulated Gate Field Effect Transistor. Author
