I'm sure that one could be built from descriptions of the device in operation. Remember, though, that it was built around available technology. Sometimes it takes a lot of modern hardware to simulate a simple transistor circuit.

I was wondering whether we could come up with something similar using modern digital signal processing techniques in conjunction with a cheap-and-cheerful FPGA evaluation kit... I know that if someone built one of these I would be interested in buying one...

The "Hassler" was reputedly first designed and built by the great Widlar. He did not publish a circuit.

The Hassler circuit was published in Bob Pease' column "What's All This Hassler Stuff, Anyhow?", in Electronic Design, May 15, 1995. However, I haven't been able to track down a copy.

On Page 145 of Troubleshooting Analog Circuits, the top left corner shows RAP hurling the famous PC and the bottom right corner shows a picture of the remains,... LoL … Another favorite quote of his was “ May your troubles be middle sized – so you can find them” RIP to RAP.

I will add it to my "Wish List" on Amazon

I believe you will also find the photo of Bob Pease tossing the computer off the roof in his first book, "Troubleshooting Analog Circuits." (well worth tracking this book down!)

When you find a circuit for one, Patent it! You'll make a fortune!!

I'd rather build a bs detector.

Yeah, she says I talk too loud ALL the time.... So don't tell HER about the hassler either!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
