    But then the signal is known and you don't need a circuit ;-)

    Fortunately in my app, I'm not expecting glitches in between the fuzz
    to fuzz period (The steady state period.).

    Lucky you! ;)

    From your earlier posts I understand that while the steady-state
    period may vary, the fuzzy period will always be <=100ns.

    Also, you've stated (AIUI) that the transitions in the fuzzy period
    will be due to a ringing inductor.

    Can you elaborate on that and, perhaps, post a schematic of the
    circuit that's generating the problem to abse or a web page

    It just may be that a/the solution for your problem lies somewhere
    other than where you think it does.

    Not until I have all the apostrophes correct. :)
    But seriously..
    I'd like to do a bunch of sims first and get the debounce circuit
    Then I can post a schematic and demonstrate how the debounce circuit
    is necessary and unavoidable.
    Happens to me often, but hopefully not this time..

    There's no reason to supress them. The first clock strobes the correct
    logic level into the flipflop, and the following clocks don't change
    it. It does exactly what the OP requested.

    You're flailing. No quad xor gate processing logic levels, in any
    reasonable system, is going to break nearby components. You make it
    sound like no digital system can ever work.

    The comparator is already making all those transitions. All I'm doing
    is running them through one more ssi package. That seems to scare you
    for some reason; it doesn't scare me.

    The same-polarity output comes out of qbar. Big deal. The concept was
    free, and works.
    Couldn't say. I haven't lost.

    OW. That is ugly and painful just to think of.

    The original Signetics PLAs were programmed by marking Xs on a form to
    indicate where to blow fuses. It wasn't all that bad.

    I think one could program a PAL or even a 22V10 at the fuse level
    without extreme agony, although there are easier ways to do it.

    Personally i would use a 9602 and a 7400 connected as a gated rs
    flip-flop. R of 5K and c of 10 pf or so.

    Fools rush in where angels fear to tread?

    You do know that if, in a peculiar window in time you have a single
    10ns edge which generates a certain spectral output, then generating
    ten 10ns edges in that same window will result in that spectrum
    being generated ten times, yes?

    Point being that one hit might not be enough to disrupt something
    that ten would. It's always best to minimize noise, wouldn't you
    Sure, but that's not the point.

    The point is that you stated that the output should be taken from Q,
    which was wrong.

    Fools invent objections that are not real, and that they cannot
    estimate realistically, for reasons that are not rational.
    No. That's stupid. I design 100+ MHz logic all the time, with tens of
    thousands of gates, and it always works. And I don't work at
    minimizing the number of transitions in each gate. My logic doesn't
    "disrupt" anything.

    It's not wrong; it inverts. I never said it didn't. Somebody pointed
    out that it does, and I instantly agreed. So use Qbar already if you
    don't want inversion.

    I designed, sketched, photographed, and posted a simple, fast,
    reliable circuit that does exactly what the OP specified, all in about
    90 seconds. And as someone else pointed out, it inverts, which I agree
    with, and that the non-inverted signal is available at Qbar.

    You designed and posted, and apparently spent hours simulating and
    tuning, a slow, complex, likely unreliable hairball that does not meet
    his specs.

    I rest my case; let the jury decide.

  14. I like your XOR circuit. However from the OP's remarks I can't make out how
    he wants the circuit to react on a single, very short pulse. Yours won't
    react at all. The OP wants short propagation, which means that the circuit
    must trigger on the first transition no matter what and then mask out
    trailing glitches. A circuit that does that will of course make broad pulses
    from narrow ones, or flip once and then get stuck in the wrong state. If
    glitches can only occur following a transition (like in a mechanical
    switch), there are better circuits than yours. If spurious glitches can
    occur anytime, your circuit is best because it filters those out. The price
    decide whether a pulse was spurious or not.

    It's a neat circuit (JL circuit)
    ....and works great.....once it gets going. :)

    If tau is large and the cct gets 1Mhz, there is a start up delay.
    If tau is made small to reduce the start up delay, the cct
    malfunctions at some lower frequency.

    (In my OP, I didn't mentioned anything about quick startup operation.

    Heck! I'm just happy to see the circuit and it's been an inspiration
    for other circuits.

    For example..
    I replaced the RC with a Dff to hold the previous 'sampled' steady
    It now works at any transition at any period (varying duty)*.
    *Within cct limitations.

    When I post problems on SED, I'm really just looking for sparks to
    start the fire..
    When the fire gets going it's usually like a smokey pile of damp
    leaves... :)

    The RC delay should be somewhat more than the expected bounce time. It
    has better dynamics if the RC is replaced by a critically-damped rlc,
    which has a better delay:recovery ratio. It should work at arbitrarily
    low rep rates, as long as the bounce time doesn't extend.
    Exactly. Circuits are ideas to be played with. You never know where
    they'll lead.

    There are always a few guys standing around with buckets of dirty
    water, ready to throw them on anything that looks like a spark.

    My understanding was that this was to clean up comparator chatter,
    with minimal prop delay from the first transition of an erratic but
    time-limited burst. I think it does that.

    So you think that a quiet system isn't better than a noisy one?

    I think the FCC would disagree with you.
    Ostensibly because you're aware of what's in your system and go to
    great pains to make sure it works like you want it to. (Short trace
    lengths, adequate bypassing, etc., etc...

    OTOH, you know nothing about the OP's system other than that it has
    an output with lots of fast transitions when it switches, so you
    have no way of knowing whether the RFI your circuit generates will
    disrupt his system or not.
    Agreeing with someone isn't the same as admitting you were wrong, is

    ISTR that, early on, you said it _wasn't_ a design, it was a
    "suggestion", LOL!

    So what's wrong with being conscientious? I do tend to take _some_
    modicum of care when I design, and try to weed out all the errors I
    can before I post it even though, as you're so fond of saying, "It's
    only a newsgroup."

    Slow? Worst case = 5 gate delays, so 2ns gates would meet his 10ns
    spec, no problem. And, that's without even trying to optimize it
    since (you might recall) I posted it as a proof of principle.

    There are always a few guys standing around with buckets of dirty
  20. I think you guys (JF and JL) are making things to
    complicated. At first I though a Flip-Flop was needed
    but now I think a single OR gate with a Cap will do
    it, as I posted.
    Cheap, simple, and fail proof. It "triggers" on the
    1st detection of a Hi, so it's fast, then latchs up
    for a period decided by the Cap value, and ignores
    the rest and then automatically resets.
