Posted November 01, 2018 09:31:03 A few years ago, I purchased a 2-channel transistor for my old transistor amplifier.
I was looking for an inexpensive way to convert an analog audio source into a digital audio signal.
In the process, I discovered the electron configuration chart, a tool that lets you view and analyze the electronic properties of the electron atom, including its electrical characteristics.
In this article, we’ll look at the history of the chart, how it was created, and how it can be used to analyze vintage electronic supplies.
A History of the Electron Configuration Chart This diagram is from the 1920s, and was developed to help users select the correct configuration for an antique electronic amplifier.
It was originally created by electrical engineer Joseph J. Taylor, who was working for Edison in New York City in the 1920’s.
In an article published in the August 22, 1926 issue of the Journal of Electronics, Taylor explained how he used the electron diagram to select the appropriate circuit for the output of an amplifier.
Taylor used the diagram to help his engineers determine the proper output impedance for a transducer, so that it would match the input impedance of the amplifier, which was often not exactly the same.
The chart was created using a pencil and paper, and it was first published in a book called The Electron and Its Applications by Charles M. Smith, published in 1925.
Taylor explained that he designed the electron chart to assist engineers in selecting an ideal transducing circuit.
As you can see in the diagram, a transistor circuit is comprised of a capacitor and an inductor.
The capacitor acts as the positive terminal of the transistor, and the inductor acts as negative terminal.
When the transistor is turned on, the positive voltage on the capacitor causes the transistor to operate.
When it is turned off, the negative voltage on a resistor (or an opposite terminal) causes the output voltage on that terminal to drop.
The output of a transistor is usually a linear, alternating current that is driven by the current in the inductance.
When there is an alternating current, the inductive component of the current is positive, and vice versa.
The voltage across a capacitor is always equal to the voltage across the inductors.
This is because when there is a current in one direction, the voltage in the opposite direction is always positive.
When you have an alternating voltage across an inductance, the value of the inductivity increases, and a higher value of capacitance is needed.
The inductive components of the voltage on either side of the capacitor will be the same when the voltage is flowing through it.
When a transistor output is changed to an inductive state, the capacitive components of that voltage are switched off.
When an input voltage is added to a circuit, the current that flows through the inductively connected capacitors will also be switched off, because they have no negative charge.
Taylor described how he selected an ideal transistor circuit to help engineer, but not to manufacture.
The electrolytic capacitors used to form the circuit would have to be extremely well insulated.
The capacitance required to make the electrolytic parts of the circuit could be increased by the addition of more electrolytic material.
This process, called electrolysis, was described in detail in the book The Electromechanical Supply Industry by Joseph A. Taylor and Walter A. Clements, published by Wiley in 1926.
In order to use the chart in the circuit design process, it was necessary to know the value and location of the electrolyte capacitors.
This was not an easy task, as Taylor had to estimate the electrolytes, then work with the manufacturer to obtain the electrolytyls, and finally locate the electrolytics for the circuit to work with.
It took quite a bit of trial and error before the electrolysis process was completed.
After the electrolytics were installed, Taylor noted that they should be used with care.
The only electrolytic used in the design process was sodium hydroxide, or NaOH.
This electrolyte is used in many products today, such as batteries and capacitors, and is a known carcinogen.
Taylor believed that the electrolyter should be placed in a well-ventilated, well-insulated location.
He believed that if it was too hot, it would cause the electrolythys to corrode and cause the capacitor to fail.
When he first made the circuit, he thought he had found the right electrolyte for the design.
However, by the time he made the second circuit, it had corroded.
Taylor noted in the article that the second electrolyte would work better than the first electrolyte, but he added that if the first circuit failed, it wouldn’t be fatal, but would only affect the output signal.
He said the first design was made with two electrolytes.
The second was made without them.
