Instead of trying to control nanosecond long crossover problems and skew in
driver chip propagation times, why not employ the Decca Tx approach of a
small value (damped) inductor between the top and bottom power devices to
'soak up' the high current short pulses.
It certainly works in my direct from mains Tx.

That idea crossed my mind 2 years ago when building my TX
(variation on the
YXM design). But due to different delay times in the inverting and
non-inverting drivers (I measured abt. 25ns difference) I
didn't use the
If you don't wan't to use a flip-flop to get the
counter-phase signals you
can use a couple of CMOS XOR gates, with a CD4077 running on
15V I measured
less than 3ns difference between the inverting and non inverting gate.
