how many keystrokes did you just invest in complaining about my simple schematic? ...
53, but . . .
It wasn't complaining, just pointing out that a discussion of electronic circuit analysis without reference designators is beyond cumbersome. The other post also was not complaining. Unlike some other forums, this one encourages discussion and instruction. That was instruction, with a like from the moderator. There is another area of the schematic that needs improvement, but that would cross over into hijacking someone else's thread.
Actually, I like the circuit. The differentiator part is almost a given, but using one transistor as a clamp to charge pump the other one is cute. I intend to steal the concept at some unknown future time.
Gold star for having a common base amplifier, the too-often-passed-over middle child of circuit design.
