Since when are NAND gates drawn without the inverting circle?Steve Greenfield AE7HD 15091 2018-09-23 22:01:07 Dana Myers Re:_[emrfd]_Re:_IEEE_Spectrum:_With_the_=e2=80=9cDead_Bug=e2=80=9d_M 15097 2018-09-26 14:11:02 kb1gmx Re: IEEE Spectrum: With the “Dead Bug” Method , Hobbyists Can Br Ya mean I should have patented that back in 1970???Seriously I was building at UHF (450 through 512) and a bit at 860mhz back thenand that is the approach we used because etching a board commercially was out ofsight. Also that was the pre cheap plated hole era by a decade easy. Lay it on itsback and dead bug with Air line (strip lines some distance above the copper) orstrips of copper clad super glued to the copper. Usually air lines as they hadlower loss.Its still a good way to go for both digital and analog. Cheap, fast, and with care very solid.Allison
