"Reading your May letters page, I was very pleased to see a missive from Ivor Catt. He comments on censorship, "publishable" material and other suppressed theories. He is, of course, right; as he always was. Way back when, in the real Wireless World, he outlined conundrums and puzzles which sat me back on my haunches, as he was clearly right and his thinking and reasoning was obviously on the right track. Questioning my night school tutors, I was never given answers, but told to read my text books; I never got reasoning a-la-Catt.


"Ivor, for god's sake, start writing letters to EW+WW again; I miss your openness and frankness."

In Cambridge in the 1950's, when Ivor Catt studied Engineering, electricity hardly figured in the syllabus.

In 1959, while working in Manchester on noise problems in the first transistorised (and therefore lower voltage, higher current) computer, the Ferranti Sirius, Catt came upon the new, unfamiliar, inductively induced noise - as opposed to the traditional capacitively induced interference of Ferranti's prevous thermionic valve computers, Mercury and Pegasus. He pursued these problems when he pioneered the interconnection of high speed ( 1 nsec ) logic gates at Motorola, Phoenix, in 1964, leading to his major paper on the subject, in IEEE Trans. Electron. Comp. EC-16 Dec. 1967. At Motorola he was fortunate to be able to buy the Tektronix 661 sampling oscilloscope with 4S1 and 4S2 (100 psec) plug-ins, and also the E-H 125 pulse generator with its 10v, 100psec fall-time step into 50W. This replaced his earlier faster, but too low repetition rate, Tektronix 109 Reed Relay pulse generator, which had given him other crucial insights.
