The Impact of Microelectronics on General Aviation Avionics 670253

Microelectronic devices are the natural next phase in the evolutionary cycle which comprises miniaturized, transistorized, and solid state components. Microelectronics refers to a miniature device that will make it possible to manufacture electronic equipment smaller than has been done in the past.
Of greater significance than the smallness of the devices is the reliability, maintainability, and ultimately the cost factors of such devices.
This paper describes various microelectronic devices currently in use and presents photographic illustrations. New products will be manufactured and marketed which will make far greater use of such devices, and, in many instances, cause a significant change in design concepts used to achieve the functions of avionics in General Aviation aircraft.
