That's a cheap jab at an article from over 2 decades ago.MMCs are just as retarded as a string of cheap, available diodes when you can just get better capacitors.

Some of that article is genuinely hilarious. “The output of each ignition coil … is fed through identical diode strings each composed of 45 series-connected 1 amp 1000-PIV diodes” Apparently this author never knew out the microwave transformer diodes!

Around $15 depending on the source. I have no idea what the electrical properties are, but I imagine it's a fairly vanilla 12V coil. _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list -- tcml@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To unsubscribe send an email to tcml-leave@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
