Abstract : This contract established producibility of a 3/8 in. diameter miniature, TO-5 transistor size, general purpose variable resistor. This size control was designed, utilizing principles already proven in on the 1/2 in. diameter, cermet element, variable resistor which was being produced (series 600) at the time the contract was let. The miniature nature of the product led to some difficulties in meeting all the original specification requirements. The problems were solved by corrections of faulty test procedures, by closer control of production processes and some modifications to the original requirements, to make them realistic in terms of a general purpose type variable resistor. Preproduction samples met the final qualification requirements, the pilot run was completed and shipped and the general report for Step II was accepted by the government. (Author)
