I've made this new(?) latched repeater pulse lengthener/sustainer (whichever name you prefer).

The basic unit Two units together

There are some rules for it to work:
- The delay of the side repeaters must not be equal or exceed the total delay of the repeaters inbetween.
- The total delay of the repeaters inbetween lines must not exceed the length of the input

What do you think about it? Is this the most compact way of extending signals?

looks good and definately will have its uses though one more limitation you should add is that it will not work with very short pulses

Guys, sorry if I wasn't clear enough, yesterday I was in a hurry. So, let me explain: The first picture is the overview of the basic unit. The second picture shows two units together acting to extend the pulse of a button. Each unit has repeaters on the side and on the middle. In the third picture, I show a design which has 3 repeaters in the middle.

The 2nd rule I mentioned is that the total delay of the repeaters in the middle must be equal or smaller than the initial pulse. So, if the input is a button, you can have up to 9 ticks of delay in the middle, because a button sends a signal for this long. This is what happens on the 3rd picture, there is a button and there are 9 ticks of delay between each line.

"It will not work with very short pulses": This is the 2nd rule in action. I put 4 ticks of delay between lines, so this means the input must be at least 4 ticks long. Due to the 1st rule, the total delay of the repeaters inbetween must be at least 2 ticks, because the side is always 1 tick or more. With a 2 tick setting, the input can be very short: 2 ticks.

I hope this helped clear things up a little.

fair enough... a apologize... it was late last night when i posted that and i must have misunderstood your second rule

That's easily fixed though. Just add a 2 tick repeater for the input, problem solved.

no 2 tick doesnt work either... at least for the bottom one... even 4 tick doesnt do it... if im not mistaken it requires at least 9 ticks

edit: yeah just tested it... 9 tick minimum for the bottom one

edit edit: top one is minimum of 4 ticks... second one is confusing so im not gonna test that one looks like 4 tick minimum though
