Abstract:

The Westinghouse Model STV606 Secon television camera has electrical performance characteristics compatible with the specifications for the camera to be used in the Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle DSRV. However, the configurations of most of the circuits in the STV606 are not readily adaptable to thin-film microcircuit technology. The use of large-value capacitors, inductors, and transformers is the most incompatible feature of the circuits in the Westinghouse camera. As an alternative, this study revealed that it is entirely feasible to design and build a miniature camera incorporating thin-film microcircuitry in most of the circuits, and employing a secondary electron conduction SEC camera tube. The circuits must be designed so as to minimize the number and value of capacitors, minimize the number of inductors and transformers, and depend where possible on resistor-value ratios rather than absolute values to permit greater control of circuit performance. An effort should also be made to maximize the use, on the thin films, of monolithic integrated circuits rather than discrete components, for greater packaging density and improved reliability.
