Abstract : The microelectronic frequency and time standard was completed. Because of several problems encountered during assembly and testing, shipment of the final equipment was delayed until 5 November l965. The major problems occurred with the power output stage of the distribution-amplifier modules. These problems were not resolved because of fund limitations, although the solution required was determined. The standard frequency oscillators and all other parts of the equipment met every design requirement except crosstalk and noise rejection. It is significant to note that the purposes of the contract (i.e., to use semiconductor networks to the greatest possible extent and to meet or exceed design requirements with those networks) were met. The circuits not meeting specifications either did not contain semiconductor networks or did not meet specifications because of other circuit components, configuration, or design philosphy. (Author)
