You also get the delay if you replace the op-amp with another device,
I never thought of running it for longer. Weird isn't it !

I don't think you'll want to keep the diode. I don't really know what's going on here though I notice if you load the current source to ground or supply with less than about 175k, that'll get it to run too. I was just poking around trying to figure out why it wants to reverse bias Q1 right out of the gate.

I don't think LTspice gets reminiscent..

Thanks Andrew.

Seems it really is one of LTspices' little (of many ) oddities I guess. All good fun.

Hi Mooly

On an unrelated note, aren't M3 and M4 living dangerously? If the output voltage exceeds +-15V, their reverse protection diodes will start conducting and short the output to the +-15V rails, or am I missing something?

Hi Godfrey,

Excellent excellent point and tbh I hadn't even thought of that at this stage... thanks. So no, it's me that's missing something on that one.

It's all just a doodle at the moment for helping me learn a bit about LTspice and trying weird ideas. In simulation the HEXFET's take over quite nicely.

Hmmm... I guess a couple of diodes 'aint going to cut it for this one.

A couple of high speed rectifier diodes in series with the drains of M3 and M4 should work, assuming you want rail-switching.

A simulation experimental zone, simulate it, shout at it, burn a few virtual components, shout a bit more... then go build it for real
