### P

#### PACKAGING LEVELS

A system developed to assist maintenance personnel in determining the
repairability of components, printed circuit boards, modules, and so forth [14].

 Keyword(s): PACKAGING LEVELS

#### PAGE PRINTER

A high-speed printer that prints teletypewriter characters one at a time in a full-page format [17].

 Keyword(s): PAGE PRINTER

#### PARABOLIC REFLECTOR

An antenna reflector in the shape of a parabola. It converts spherical
wavefronts from the radiating element into plane wavefronts [18].

 Keyword(s): PARABOLIC REFLECTOR

#### PARALLAX ERROR

The error in meter readings that results when you look at a meter from some
position other than directly in line with the pointer and meter face. A mirror mounted on the meter face aids in eliminating parallax error [3].

 Keyword(s): PARALLAX ERROR

#### PARALLEL CIRCUIT

Two or more electrical devices connected to the same pair of terminals so
separate currents flow through each; electrons have more than one path to travel from the negative to the positive terminal [1].

 Keyword(s): PARALLEL CIRCUIT

#### PARALLEL LIMITER

A resistor and diode, connected in series with the input signal, in which the
output is taken across (parallel to) the diode [9].

 Keyword(s): PARALLEL LIMITER

#### PARALLEL-CONNECTED DUPLEXER

Configuration in which the tr spark gap is connected across the two legs of the transmission line one-quarter wavelength from the T-junction [18].

 Keyword(s): PARALLEL-CONNECTED DUPLEXER

#### PARALLEL-NEGATIVE LIMITER

A resistor and diode, connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across the diode and the negative alternation is eliminated [9]

 Keyword(s): PARALLEL-NEGATIVE LIMITER

#### PARALLEL-POSITIVE LIMITER

A resistor and diode connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across the diode and the positive alternation is eliminated [9].

 Keyword(s): PARALLEL-POSITIVE LIMITER

#### PARALLEL-RESONANT CIRCUIT

A resonant circuit in which the source voltage is connected across
a parallel circuit (formed by a capacitor and an inductor) to furnish a high impedance to the frequency at which the circuit is resonant. Often referred to as a tank circuit [9] [10].
