A shipboard radar system used to guide aircraft to safe landings in poor visibility conditions .
(1) One or more digits, produced in connection with an arithmetic operation, that is/are forwarded to another digit place for processing there. (2) The number represented by the digit or digits in (1) above .
In a velocity-modulated tube, a grid on which the spaced electron groups induce a signal. The output of the tube is taken from the catcher grid .
(1) In an electron tube the electrode that is the source of current flow . (2) The general name for any negative electrode . (3) The negative terminal of a forward-biased semiconductor diode, which is the source of the electrons .
The method of biasing a vacuum tube in which the biasing resistor is placed in the common-cathode return circuit, thereby making the cathode more positive with respect to ground .
A system in which the cathode circuit is interrupted so that neither grid current nor plate current can flow .
Voltage on the cathode is varied to produce the modulation envelope .
A process of producing thin film components .
CATHODE-RAY TUBE (CRT)
An electron tube that has an electron gun, a deflection system, and a
screen. This tube is used to display visual electronic signals .
A space totally enclosed by a metallic conductor and supplied with energy in
such a way that it becomes a source of electromagnetic oscillations. The size and shape of the enclosure determine the resonant frequency .
