Please clarify your question. Do you mean they do not turn themselves off after you go around a turn? Or, do you mean they no longer blink?

Like it says.... it's distance limited (as of today). Maybe when it can work over longer distances then it may compete. Then it will depend on cost. The cheaper solution (that gets the job done) always wins. However, I'm sure that applications will be developed for this new technology that could nev...

Depending on how you fabricate your boards, you need a fairly precise proces s to get your footprints accurate. Having said that, working on FR4 substrate and using 0402 footprint components you should be able to operate up to 2 or 3 GHz. If you want to go higher then you now can get 0201 footprint ...

Do your voltage measurements along the wiring with a ~21W light bulb in parallel to the voltmeter probes. :smile:

Miguel,
What is the purpose? Is it to draw current out of the node you're measuring the voltage at... to see if there's I*R drop?

Are we talking about park lights here or signal lights? Or both? Most of the time the problem with park lights is a bad ground. Especially on something like a boat trailer or maybe even a travel trailer. Alot of times the trailer isn't galvanized & under coated like your vehicle and the chassis rust...

Thank you.


Once again you have proven my point!

You didn't get the bit about the question mark, did you?

Chris, I don't need to be school'd by you. I have many years of formal university level education in electrical engineering specifically in electronics. I get paid alot of money to design electronics. I have fine tuned my education in electronics by designing circuits for many years. I really doubt ...

What kind of drugs are you on?

A few posts back I thought you were serious. Now I think you're just playing with me... trying to make us think you are nuts. You have achieved that loud & clear.

Chris, During my travels I have encountered people that approach electronics from two directions. One being from a physics (scientific approach) and another being from an electrical engineering approach. Both trains of thought will (at the end of the day) arrive at the same answer or solution. Someo...

No offense to you Chris. I design radios professionally for products that are sold by the millions and I still have no clue what you're talking about or what your point is.

Im sure Tesla rolls over in his grave when he hears, "caps arent every thing"? The inventor of the poly phase, etc. Physics and electronics are very specific. Dont kid your self? Sorry man, you're approaching this way too general (for me) and apparently from a philosophical point of view. Are you a...

Timing is everything? Everybody considers the three or four quadrants of ohms law? [wow?] So why is time always left out? Mentality?

Some circuits, the capacitor is an integral part of the design. Like building a house... how do you know if it needs a roof.... well it's not a house without the roof! Besides those types of circuits, if you build a circuit you have to give it a power supply. Alot of times you want an AC ground and ...
