This technical report presents tube information primarily from the point of view of the electronic equipment designer as a guide in the application of electron tubes. In Part I tube properties are discussed. These are grouped according to ratings, characteristics essential in circuit operation, and properties detrimental to circuit operation. Part II discusses the tube properties in relation to circuit design. It includes a check list for use of the circuit designer to insure coverage of all important design factors. Part III contains numerical data and special design considerations for specific tube types. Part IV presents product distribution curves derived from Life Test records where available. The concepts of specification control, operation within ratings, and tolerance of characteristics are emphasized throughout.
