Abstract:

MIRAGE is the first attempt to eliminate the electromechanical devices such as resolvers, synchros, gear trains and electric motors inherent to PPI displays by the use of digital silicon integrated circuit techniques. By the use of digital techniques a 10-inch PPI display was developed that weighs 63 pounds, has a volume of 2.2 cubic feet and consumes 85 watts of power. All the circuits in this PPI are transistorized except the CRT itself and actually 98 of the circuits are of the silicon integrated type. The circuits that are still conventional transistorized were designed to be easily integratable at a later date. Author
