my RTL memory circuit is an oscillator? please help! Answered
Today I soldered together a "D-latch" one bit memory circuit comprised entirely of resistors and transistors. If someone asks me about the schematic, I'll post it.
The weird thing about my RTL (resistor transistor logic) memory circuit is that it also works as an oscillator that short circuits my power supply. There is also a slight delay between when i try to set my D-latch's memory state, and when it actually happens.
I have an educated guess that the delay in state change is caused by whatever bizarre mistake caused the oscillation within the circuit.
does anyone know of any resistor transistor timer circuits on the web? that may help quite a bit. (lol. EPIC memory pun)
the picture above is my device.
the oscillation is around 1.2 Hertz. it occurs when the D (data) input of my memory circuit is high.
as you can see, this is really confounding me. please help with a comment!
