Re: Guitar tuning
Gibson makes/sells an auto-tuning guitar. They don't seem to be highly rated on the guitar sites that I checked. I have a number of head-stock mounted tuners (one per instrument). They all work reliably, differening only in display, size, and battery life. As for dynamically tuning during a played note, that's a non-starter. It is common to bend the string to intentionally alter the pitch and I don't want some computer deciding what I wanted for a particular note.

Re: Guitar tuning
I have a guitar tuner that senses vibration in the neck. The nice thing about that is because it senses vibration and doens;t liste for sound, you can use the tuner in noisy places. Mine is not in the link above because apparently it's been replaced. The tuner built into a capo looks cool and useful.

Re: Guitar tuning
@RedDerek - like auto-tune for singers. Of course, it does tend to take away from the need for skill in the artform. In other words, I like the idea of a guitar tuner when used initially (before you start playing), but not after.

Re: Guitar tuning
Analog is little complicated if compared to digital apart from fact that computers do things faster analog still keeps its resemblance safe, DSPs are trying to get faster while only analog circuits can do serious signal processing at high frequencies.

Guitar tuning
I like the guitar tuning concept. It could be applied to all types of string instruments where by the system can detect where the finger is placed, it would monitor for that frequency and adjust the tension automatically to meet that note.

If playing, the system could almost tune dynamically and keep the instrument in tune throughout the performance.

Flip-side... if some bug works in, it could make the music really off key. :-)

A three-part series of articles explains how to minimize interference through proper PCB design and layout.
In such things as laboratory power supplies or electronic systems, in which various components are connected to longer cables, the regulated voltage is not always particularly accurate at the point where it is needed due to various voltage drops across the interconnection lines.
There area plethora of USB Type-C articles out there, but this is the first one I have seen with a really neat design architecture to shrink the board footprint with a high level of integration.
The required selectivity of a customer design implied four-pole filters with about 10% bandwidth (passband width about 10% of the centre frequency). There was a catch---a tight power budget
