John, prior art is good stuff. Have you ever tried to get a patent
without showing prior art? I did that twice and got nailed for extra
legal fees each time when the patent atty had to jump through hoops to
satisfy the examiner. I don't know if it's the same nowdays since the
Patent Office turned into a profit center and anyone can patent the
circle, but normally you have to show what was done before, what problems
it caused, and how your solution solves those problems.
It's obvious what you think of this idea, which makes it a little hard to
communicate. Even though diode samplers will always be faster, the binary
sampler has some unique advantages and solves a lot of problems that
are inherent with diode bridges. And it has enough bandwidth to be useful
in many areas.
And that's all it takes.
