The purpose of the sensor matrix is to provide a snap-shot of many measurements made at the same point in time. An affordance within the measurement data is the relationship of the various sensors to each the other. The analysis of the sensor data proceeds with examination between sensor channels of categoric simultaneity.

The types of sensors needed will evolve with the understanding of the timing variations in the randomality of the Hexatron Ring Amp. A period measurement of oscillator cycles will work by capturing a binary counter accumulating a total of square waves in a quartz oscillator. Quartz crystals at different places on and about the Hexatron will oscillate at a different rate to each the other if the Hexatron forms a tempic field as discovered by Wilbert Smith.

Each cycle-time, a duration, per matrix channel, can be a positive or negative conduction cycle in the ring oscillator.

Time-balanced-throughput sensor matrix design

The mature sensor matrix design will be implemented with hobby-priced programmable-hardware that internally configures to the exact logic solution needed. These are called field-programmable logic arrays (FPGA).


Design requirements shared by each analog sensor channel

Analog sensor-channel input

  • Input is a sense-voltage and a reference-voltage, sourced from the operating Hexatron, at any of various locations about the assembly.
  • Each sensor in the matrix is critically balanced to measure the same event at the same time on related sensors sensing the same event.
  • The time-balancing of the sensor matrix may also be adjusted algorithmically from known timing-delays per sensor.

Sensor Channel output

  • A sensor channel triggers an output at a preset threshold of that channel (experimenter-adjustable via API) or windowed-limits, as a one or two parameter channel.
  • The output of each sensor channel is a time-stamp of the moment of threshold attainment of the channel's threshold parameters.
  • A sensor matrix consists of two or more sensors engineered to capture a multi-column log of binary time-stamps.
  • The sensor triggers the capture of a master clock.
  • The output per channel is the clock-count captured at the moment of a sensed-threshold.
  • Each channel is clocked by the same quartz-time-base square wave bussed to each channel.
  • Each matrix channel clock is a binary-counter incremented continually from quartz time base at a sufficient frequency to resolve oscillator periods and resolve harmonics and transients within the noise.
  • The analog-threshold detection of the oscillator period is of the same principle as the analog matrix channels, except the measured source-signal will be the gate-voltage of the power-transistor driving current through a copper torus knot.

Time, as our clocks measure it, is really the rate of change of entropy in this part of our universe, and exists because of the presence of the basic reality. It may be altered by altering the configuration and proportion of the basic fields or it may be increased or decreased in a certain region by redistribution of reality. This may seem to be quite complicated, and it is for anyone with our limited understanding of nature; but really quite simple to those whose understanding transcends ours.Wilbert Brockhouse Smith, circa late 1950-s
