Besides sine,square,Saw tooth can 3-d form new Waves,

Some signal generators allow you to draw your own signal for output to a circuit or scope.

Book'em'Dano - Feed the answers that are needed, Thanks Retched
for direction,can anyone do the math on a square wave-from base to
collector,say resistance,temp,average voltage at input. Compare it to
a new wave generated,show new type wave.Draw the the new wave
so we can see what it looks and compare results, Go Dano. The question
if time can equal time with same resistance,temp In other words we want
to develope a wave like a star that will use each point to cut transistor
on and off six times.Making a curcuit that would be six times faster at the
one on ,off that results now. Creating more computer speed as the end results.
This Is a mind bender that results in breadboard experiments to see if we can
go back to the beginning and create more speed.In my mind,I see a star
rotating at the input of a curcuit,each point,and each V causing a change for
more speed from a curcuit that exist now..I see this in my mind better than I can
put in words.Tell me Its not possible,but have good reason for why not.

A discharge curcuit to propell star rotation and speed control.

Actually it is an interesting concept. We already have some pretty bad Oscope designs for PC sound cards, a programmable signal generator could be useful. While I don't personally know of any I'm sure they exist.

It makes It worth while to copyright post 4,you never know.Thanks for
an opinion.Like I say,I picture the curcuit in my mind.If some speed could
be picked up on the front end of the process,an enlargement can be
arranged on the rear end.Like more signal up front,other types of boost for
monitoring screens to match the increase in signal.With marvels of todays
computers count the steps you have to go thru to get results,Maybe the
voice operated speed could be better.Think for a second,the only difference
to a phone conversation,the faster switching to receive the call and clear
signal.Can you picture micro- fiber optic treated elements to reduce heat.
Follow some of these thoughts thru curcuits and compare where you think
heat could be reduced.How much If any does fiber optic Strands create any
heat. Again these are mind bending thoughts,look for speed and less heat
which Is already being studied thru cooling.Fiber could be constructed to have
open ventilation acting as signal conduit.

loosewire. Why are you posting in a public forum, then "copyrighting" your posts? Forget your copyright. Post for the good of all, not for self-serving reasons.

Intel has a system called Light Peak that will use fiber optic,they say
Its has blinding speed,there word .Check It out.

Loosewire,
Are you huffing canned air?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Have you guys checked out Itel Light Peak,that all I am asking.
Would comment on that.

Yes, fiber optic is fast. We knew that already.

By the way, you can't get a "star shaped" waveform out of anything.

The best you can do is to approach a square wave.

If you want really fast turn-on/turn-off times for a transistor, you use a cap across the base resistor, and avoid saturation of the transistor. It takes a relatively long time for a transistor to come out of saturation.

However, this is nothing new

It is possible with the right type of transistor and CAP....

Flux capacitor?

Maybe.

http://kalecoauto.com carries them once in a very blue moon, but I haven't seen them in stock lately. However, have a look at their dual "O" exhaust; it's guaranteed to provide 100% feedback.

The site's worth a look. Keep your charge card in your pocket though.

I have a really old cookbook, found it at a flea market and was given it as a gift. It is the same edition I used to use when I was in college (yes, it is that old). Full of tubes and old transistor circuits.

Anyhow, they have a section on how to make letters on a CRT using vector graphics. Each letter/number has an analog circuit how to shape the wave form to produce said result.

I know, not much to do with the original post, but closer than fiber optic and light wave (which I worked on for 20 or so years at Alcatel). Sheesh.
