The purpose of the Modules Integrated Circuits for Communications Program is to demonstrate the application of integrated circuits in analog communications equipment the demonstration vehicle being a IF - video functional assembly for the Mark X IFF Transponders. The requirements of the IF-video functional assembly have been evaluated and the design approach of a Lin-Log 60-megacycle IF amplifier using a successive detection technique has been selected. An analysis of the preliminary circuit and the integrated circuit device requirement has been performed. A number if integrated circuit devices for the Lin-Log amplifier have been evaluated and appear to satisfy the circuit requirements. The RCA TA-5037 appears to be the most suitable for this application. A breadboard IF assembly will be constructed to determine the overall performance of the device in an amplifier. Additional devices will be tested to determine if an improvement in the gain bandwidth can be obtained. Author
