THE new 1980-81 XL -100 color-TV
chassis introduced only recently by
RCA's Consumer Products Division em-
phasizes new technology, reduced parts
count, and lower power consumption.
New technology includes SAW (surface
acoustic wave) filters and more sophisti-
cated ICs, including one that processes
most luminance and chroma functions.
A few discrete transistors are used in
these chassis, mainly in the power sup-
ply, sweep circuits, and final picture -
tube drivers. The entire circuit assembly
fits on a single "planar" printed -circuit
board that measures 121 sq in.
Three chassis are included in this to-
tally new line of moderately priced. color

notable difference among the three is a
