Starter-Project Q&A:

--- Please add your questions to the public chat! ---

Q: Why start with logic chips when high-current pulses are the end game?

A: The design using logic gates uses only logic chips and a breadboard, and a battery.  The behavior of the differential-ring-oscillator circuit is explored before slaving inductive loads to the logic timing.  

--> Ways to understand what is being observed in the ring oscillator (with instruments) is open for advisement!

---

Q: How does a ring oscillator relate to a dimple in space-timing?  

A: Well, not much.  Perhaps like a window fan relates to a jet-engine.  

--> The ring-amplifier, when made well (per journal papers), is capable of amplifying regularity in background noise.  

--> The ring amp also is also selective of amplified signals by the natural (average) frequency of oscillation.  Signals near the ring's natural resonance are more amplified.  This allows fabrication to some certain scale to create natural resonance at some certain resonant frequency.  Scale-tuned.

Q: What is a ring-amplifier verses a ring oscillator?

A: Not sure.  Please advise.  An operating definition: Ring-oscillations that accept some signals within the operating noise envelope that are preserved at their timing-edge (pulse edge of an oscillator section flipping or flopping) and amplified into the power-level of the amplifier slaved-switches becomes a power-amplifier in a ring, a ring-amp.

--> The fidelity of the sense of the experiments that happened in the future is afforded by how well the timing-edge of system pulses is preserved through the system.  Well preserved fidelity in the propagation delay of switching components affords a higher level of pulse resolution.  I.e., the transistor-gates can better see individual trees (pulses) in a forest of trees (high power level system noise).

--> The future analysis technique is afforded in fidelity when the sensor-matrix is temporally-tuned such that each sensor outputs signals generated by the same natural event at the same time.  Temporally aligned sensor matrix.  This edge-discrimination in such a temporally-flat matrix allows live analysis of time-stamps (quartz based but precise in a local time frame) to directly represent dynamical events in the measurement time-line. [Note: the matrix isn't built-flat, but is built with provision to become a bundle of tuned-pipes.]

Q: Can I visually observe the noise on an oscilloscope?

A: Sort of, yes, in a messy way.  The ring oscillator is inherently noisy as the signal propagation in the ring accumulates all timing errors (away from theoretic average) while the ring is oscillating.  So, an oscilloscope will directly display a fuzzy trace because the oscillations vary in their rate of repetition. 

--> By using a level-trigger to start each o-scope signal trace, the timing variation of the ring-oscillator is lost, and each trace overlays a trace profile that does not reflect the timing variation of the oscillator stages.

--> A timing domain analysis is in order, recorded for analysis in digital form by fast data acquistion of a quartz counter's instantaneous count in the sensor matrix.  This happened in the future.  Anticipate the QATNAP project.

Q: When will the first experiment be posted?

A: Soon.  Bucket-list time soon.  Interaction with me could speed things up.  We are remodeling a home here, and the roof comes off soon, which goes on a few months.  

--> Before a formal attempt to map random dynamics in a ring oscillator, there will be various prototypes and test set-ups done, perhaps.  

--> The serious attempts for emergence of a boson-stability in the randomality are targeted for later versions using power-transistors and heavy amperage, toward kiloWatt operation where resonant thresholds have more...
