The objective of this program was to determine the feasibility of a TIMM triode in the ten-watt class. The relative merits of both the planar and the cylindrical design were investigated. Processing and assembly steps were developed and experimental tubes of each design were constructed. Experimental tubes of each design were evaluated for electrical characteristics and performance under swept frequency vibration, shock, and life test conditions. The feasibility of both designs was demonstrated and some problem areas defined. Further effort in these areas is recommended. Author
