Abstract:

FABRICATION, TESTING AND DELIVERY OF A BINARY-ADDRESSABLE SCAN-CONVERTER STORAGE-TUBE. The tube is to be capable of simultaneous write and non-destructive read operation at video frequency up to 10 megahertz. Both the read and write gun assemblies with spares were completed and tested for conformance with specifications. The various components of the digitizer-unit were fabricated, and the refractory insulators were ordered from companies specializing in close tolerance grinding of such materials. The silicon wafers were prepared with the precision notches for indexing, and were annealed, oxidized, and metalized. The masks for photoresist-controlled etching of the electrode-patterns were completed. A precision laser-drilling and machining facility was acquired, installed and checked out.
