I

INTERMEDIATE FREQUENCY

A lower frequency to which an RF echo is converted for ease of amplification [18].


INTERMEDIATE POWER AMPLIFIER

The amplifier between the oscillator and final power amplifier [12].


INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL MAINTENANCE

Direct support and technical assistance to user organizations. Tenders and shore-based repair facilities [14].


INTERPOLES

Small auxiliary poles, placed between main field poles, whose magnetic field opposes the armature field and cancels armature reaction. Interpoles accomplish the same thing as compensating windings [5].


INTERSECTION LAW

In Boolean algebra, the law which states that if one input to an AND gate is
already TRUE, then the output will depend upon the state of the other inputs only [13].


INVERSELY

Inverted or reversed in position or relationship [1].

INVERT

To change a physical or logical state to its opposite state [13].

INVERTER

A circuit with one input and one output. Its function is to invert or reverse the input. When the input is high, the output is low, and vice versa. The inverter is sometimes called a NOT circuit, since it produces the reverse of the input [13].


ION

An electrically charged atom or group of atoms. Negative ions have an excess of electrons; positive ions have a deficiency of electrons [1].


IONIZATION

(1) The process of producing ions. (2) The electrically charged particles produced by high-energy radiation, such as light or ultraviolet rays, or by the collision of particles during thermal agitation [6] [10].
