"Since the advent of the transistor in 1948 many technological barriers have been overcome in the field of semiconductors. Unfortunately, however, there is a considerable period of time between the discovery of a scientific phenomena and its widespread use and understanding by practicing engineers. The motivating factor which prompted this investigation was primarily the lack of knowledge which the author possessed concerning transistors. The selection of the amplifier and oscillator design confined the study primarily to the transistor. Considerable time, however, had to be spent in the study of basic transistor theory before any phase of the design could be effected.
Statement of problem. This study was undertaken to investigate the theoretical and practical application of the transistor in a band pass amplifier and a variable frequency oscillator. The primary objective was to develope a unified design approach for both circuits. The specifications which the intermediate frequency amplifier was expected to meet were; (1) a power gain of 50 db; (2) a one megacycle flat response using stagger tuning. The oscillator was to be variably tuned and operate at a frequency of ten megacycles"--Introduction, pages 1-2.
