Do the people who write these articles ever bother to see what they look like when they get published?

I mean, COME ON, EE Times!  WAKE UP!  This is such a joke.

A tuned filter?
WKetel   9/28/2013 9:10:24 PM
My first thought would be a tuned LC filter, resonant around 120 Hz. That would have avoided the noise problem and been far more reliable, and a whole lot cheaper.

When I was designing test equipment for factory floor operation we almost always put a Sola Brabd constant voltage transformer ahead of the controls and instrumantation power input. It was always cheaper than even one service call to fix a machine, and it gave us a reputaion for producing very reliable testing machines. The noise on the waveform on the scope traces looks a bit like it comes froman inverter drive circuit for a medium horsepower motor.

that is the funny thing about so many stories involving solving a problem. Someone always comes along with a single sentence that would have probably saved you hours... a long time after the fact.

It's not so easy to create a monster :)

Though the schematics are difficult to read I can identify some R's on the primary side. Thus an adequate C should have done the trick.

Wouldn't a simple RC filter have cleaned up the 60 Hz to get a stable clock?

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
