AbstractA new approach to the problem of equalizing direct reproduce channels of instrumentation tape recorders has been developed. The technique employed utilizes active circuits and signal processing to develop the required transfer function. The principal advantage of the approach is that it requires only one operational adjustment to obtain the equalization characteristics. This allows a significant reduction in operator setup time and an increase in reliability by the reduction in the number of variable circuit elements. This is achieved by a slight increase in overall circuit complexity, the effect of which is minimized by the repetitive use of simple, functional circuits. The overall system approach is suitable for hybrid or monolithic technology.
