The Bootstrapped Astable Multivibrator

Some time ago, I reverse-engineered a low-cost inverter made by Vector Mfg. (now Black & Decker). It uses a classic 2-BJT astable multivibrator (AMV) but with a circuit design twist, as shown below. What is the purpose of R6?
Optimal Real-Time Microcomputer Architecture

Real-time analog-oriented systems often have embedded microcontrollers (Cs), if not DSPs or some synergism of the two.

Removing the vuvuzela narrow-band noise was presenting challenges to broadcast engineers
This article discusses how using a single synchronous buck controller can output the most common voltage rails, and accommodate a wide range of operating input voltages from 3V to 40V, and at a reasonable BOM cost.
This article explains how the latest-generation SiC FETs are ideally suited to new inverter designs with lower losses than IGBTs and proven robustness against short circuits, even at high temperatures and under repetitive stress
There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
