Abstract : A detailed summary of the research conducted on solid state circuit techniques is presented. The objectives are fourfold: First, to describe the current requirement in telemetry for a low level electronic commutator; second, to analyze tavior of the transistor switching char acteristics, namely, the cutoff, active, and saturation regions; third, to consider the low level characteristics of transistor switching parameters on low-level circuit performance; and finally to present a detailed theoretical analysis of transistor low-level operation lead ing to a design approach for an acceptable low level switch.
