Abstract : Sample patterns for evaluation of tantalum thin-film resistors and capacitors were designed and all necessary art work and photography completed. Elements have been prepared and processed to ensure stabilization prior to testing. Special test fixtures have been designed and completed to facilitate evaluation of component performance. Proposed schedule of testing is provided. Circuit study with regard to the application of miniature components has been undertaken. Evaluation of miniature diode, transistors, and transformers has been applied to the blocking oscillator and the solid state commutator. A thin film version of the blocking oscillator has been studied in breadboard form to compare its performance with one composed of discrete conventional components. (Author)
