Abstract:

The results of transistor pressings made this interval are reviewed. The process modifications made to improve peak hFE, maximum current capability, and emitter leakage are described. These modifications resulted in a peak beta as high as 40 at 4.5 amperes and 30 volts VCE, an ICmax 11 amperes, and an emitter leakage of typically 10 milliamperes at 3 volts. Experiments carried out on several aspects of the pressing conditions are discussed in detail. Work initiated in the fabrication and testing of final output and driver units is also described.
