    Has any one ever applied oven heated diodes in a circuit to keep the
    Vf down to a minimum?

    I remember years ago I was tossing this idea around in my head but
    didn't have the resources to experiment with this idea.

    Thinking a glass type package may live longer.

    A lot of NIM bin systems used the +/- 24V power supplies to
    good effect; with the right op amps, and higher signal voltages,
    the diode breakpoint thing is very well behaved.

    Modern design with +5V single supplies is just NOT well behaved,
    and (IMHO) low voltage analog design is like playing tennis
    wearing a straitjacket. White straitjacket, of course.

    I'm having trouble visualizing the "feedforward nonlinear breakpoint thing"inside an error driven closed feedback loop- usually the feedforward wouldadjust a parameter to stabilize the loop dynamics which would otherwise vary widely as a function of some other input.

    regulating steam generators are no problem, the secret is in the (D)
    parameter of the PID loop. :)
