Great link, jaycee!

Sinclair Radionics produced Class-D (PWM) amplifiers in kit or assembled form back in 1965.

RIP Sir Clive.

Thanks to Sir Clive, I built my first Spectrum 48K compatible computer in 1991, while I was student. It was named Cobra and was very popular along students.
On this machine I learned to code in Basic and enjoyed a plethora of games.
