Abstract : The objective of the production engineering measure is to establish a production capability to manufacture broadband, highly reliable, integrated circuit amplifiers for use in Army Communications equipment. The work involves transistor design optimization, fabrication of an impedance transformer, and fabrication of a suitable substrate interconnection pattern and package. The program includes actual fabrication of test samples, a production run, and performance of electrical, mechanical, and environmental tests as required. Twelve of the first article amplifiers were environmentally tested during this quarter. The amplifiers were divided into groups of two and three and subjected to the various tests. Results are presented.
