interesting post moped


so basically there can be chips that work with the capacitor, chips that can only work without it, chips that can be damaged without it and all the other combinations.

It would make most sense for manufacturers to do a chip that worked in all conditions (cheaper bulk manufacturing, less complaints from slot car tinkerers), but that isn't always the case, so it is a matter which needs either statements from the manufacturers or investigation by us lot - which will have to wait til the chips are here.

how come Fly cars don't have any capacitors or chokes? I don't understand how they obtained their CE certificate if this is the case

generally speaking, electronic and electrical goods can 'contaminate' the mains supply - in other words add a signal to the mains which will travel to other houses; it can even be used as a network cable, sending signals between computers, if you wanted. However, if people all spuriously put accidental and intential stuff on the mains, it will interfere with other people's equipment which is designed to work with a clean mains signal. I think the regulation is a good one, the people who like it the least are the people who have to design electronic/electrical stuff, because they can't be lazy.
