6.776 High Speed Communication Circuits (MIT) 6.776 High Speed Communication Circuits (MIT)

Description

6.776 covers circuit level design issues of high speed communication systems, with primary focus being placed on wireless and broadband data link applications. Specific circuit topics include transmission lines, high speed and low noise amplifiers, VCO's, mixers, power amps, high speed digital circuits, and frequency synthesizers. In addition to learning analysis skills for the above items, students will gain a significant amount of experience in simulating RF circuits in SPICE and also building RF circuits within a lab project. 6.776 covers circuit level design issues of high speed communication systems, with primary focus being placed on wireless and broadband data link applications.

Fitting breech blocks at the Elswick Works

Description

Women workers fitting breech blocks in 5 Shop, Elswick Works, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2 December 1942 (TWAM ref. DX1529/1). ?Workshop of the World? is a phrase often used to describe Britain?s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It?s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Progress at Roker Pier, 1889

Description

View of Roker Pier under construction, showing progress by May 1889 (TWAM ref. 3768/8). This shows the railway tracks used by wagons to transport the granite and concrete blocks used in the construction of the Pier. This set of images relates to Roker Pier, Sunderland and is taken from a scrapbook kept by Henry Hay Wake, chief engineer to the River Wear Commission. Henry Wake designed Roker Pier and also oversaw its construction from beginning to end. The Pier' s foundation stone was laid in September 1885 and it was formally opened on 23 September 1903. The Pier is 2,800 feet long and was built of Aberdeen granite and concrete cement at a total cost of 290,000.

Cox Green, Washington

Description

View of Cox Green, Washington from across the River Wear, May 1965 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/36063V). 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of Washington New Town. It was officially established on 24 July 1964 and since then the area has witnessed massive changes. Old pit terraces have been replaced with modern housing, thousands of new jobs have been created, great new shopping and leisure facilities have been built and a derelict industrial landscape has been reclaimed and transformed. To celebrate this anniversary Tyne & Wear Archives has brought together a set of images of Washington as it was 50 years ago. These were commissioned by Washington Development Corporation, which was responsible for planning, designing and building the New Town. The images are an important reminder of Washington's past. They reflect how much of the town has changed beyond recognition. The town will continue to evolve over the next fifty years and we must make sure that the memories continue to be preserved.

Ship repair yard of Brigham & Cowan, 1962

Description

Aerial view of the ship repair yard of Brigham & Cowan, South Shields, taken by Turners Ltd, July 1962 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/29538E). Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a series of aerial photographs of South Tyneside. These images were captured by the Newcastle-based photographic firm Turners Ltd. Many of the images reflect the district's rich industrial heritage, showing businesses and places that no longer exist. We would be delighted if you could help us to tag these by adding the names of streets and buildings that you recognise. Old photographs can often stimulate distant memories and we would also love to hear any reminiscences that these images inspire (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons.

Crowd gathers for launch

Description

View of the cargo ship ?Ruddbank? ready for launch at the Deptford shipyard of Sunderland Shipbuilders Ltd, 1 November 1978 (TWAM ref. DS.DOX/4/PH/1/906/1/2). Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a selection of images from its Sunderland shipbuilding collections. The set has been produced to celebrate Sunderland History Fair on 7 June 2014. It's a reminder of the thousands of vessels launched on the River Wear and the many outstanding achievements of Sunderland?s shipyards and their workers. These photographs reflect Sunderland?s history of innovation in shipbuilding and marine engineering from the development of turret ships in the 1890s through to the design for SD14s in the 1960s. The Sunderland shipbuilding collections are full of fascinating stories. Some of these are represented in this set, such as the ?Rondefjell?, launched in two halves on the River Wear by John Crown & Sons Ltd and then joined together on the River Tyne. The set also shows the vital part that Sunderland?s shipbuilding industry played during the First World War. William Doxford & Sons Ltd built Royal Naval destroyers such as HMS Opal, which served in the Battle of Jutland, while other yards constructed cargo ships to help keep these shores supplied.
