Hi guys. I stumbled upon this website while browsing randomly on youtube. Weird coincidence huh?
I am generally new and have little to no experience in electronics. But I do learn quite fast, as long as the item of interest have no more than a few variables and what nots.
I may not be making anything yet due to an ungodly low budget (aren't we all?) since I am still a leech.

But in the mean time I would try to understand the concept of the whole picture. I just hope the items required will not be sold out as soon as I have the money to spare. =D

Also, I would probably be frequently submitting Qs on parts, possibilities and ideas only for now if that is okay. Gotta get my theories straight first right?

Hope that I didn't type anything offensive. Anyway thanks for having me. =)

Thanks Drew. I'll be spending the most of the time trying to understand the whole picture while I save up some fat stacks of cash (okay, not so fat).

I might need some briefing on the jitter part though. For now I just assume that it is most likely interruption of the coordination system (and other what nots) due to electric current. =\ Or not.

There have been various causes of jitter. but the basic problem seems to be that electronic elements can put out magnetic fields.  these pulse at a certain frequency and throw out the magnetic field that the Wacom uses to track the pen.

Some monitors will work with one model tablet, but not another, because the tablets work on different frequencies.

It's a bit pot luck unless you use a known good combination, but jitter can be minimised by good shielding. 

In one odd case it turned out to be a failing power supply that was nowhere near the tablet.  when the supplky bwent and was replaced the jitter went away.  Roll Eyes
