Join mit Datums-Bereichen

Wenn man mit SQL arbeitet, dann gehört die Behandlung von Datumsintervallen zu den Themen mit eher beschränktem Unterhaltungswert. Insofern ist es sehr nützlich, dass Stew Ashton eine Artikelserie veröffentlicht hat, in der er diverse Spezialfälle genauer beleuchtet, mit denen man in diesem Kontext konfrontiert werden kann:

Shoppers Propel Valentine’s Day Into Top 2 Retail Gift Holidays

A Colpitts oscillator uses a combination of inductors and capacitors to produce an oscillation at the resonant frequency of LC circuit.

To see that in action, I built one on a protoboard and it delivers an almost perfect 22.9kHz .. compared to the theoretical 22.5kHz.

As always, all notes and code are on GitHub.

Here's a trace of the output signal on CH1, and the mid-point of the capacitor pair on CH2:

Nested loop internals. Part 3: comparative efficiency

In the previous parts (here and here) of the series we looked at some aspects of nested loop I/O optimizations, but we have left out the most important question (from the practical point of view): how these methods are doing time-wise?
