And I was never able to make it go faster than about 100Hz as a result;
my 220K sped it up only a little.
But what I plan to do is to simply use this as a power supply; I will
beef up the supply with a low-leak
capacitor, then switch it at high speed with a fast optoisolator. HP
makes some fast components like
