Watch Tick Timer Circuit


Posted on Oct 3, 2012    4540

This circuit adapts a frequency counter to measure intervals. It was originally used as a shutter speed checker for a photo application. The watch ticks are clipped and shaped and formed into a square wave. This square wave is used to gate an accurately known clock (1-MHz TTL XTAL OSC) and an external counter is used to directly count the clock pulses during the interval to be measured.
