Meter Counter Circuits
This self-starting fixed-frequency oscillator circuit gives excellent frequency stability. R1 and C 1 comprise the frequency-determining network, while R2 provides the regenerative feedback. Diode D 1 enhances the stability by compensating for the difference between VaH and VsurrLYÂ·
Capacitor C1 is charged through timing resistor R1 when the clock output is high. When C1 reaches the upper threshold voltage, the output signal decreases, and then C1 discharges through R1 until its voltage reaches the lower threshold point. When this happens, the output increases again and the cycle repeats itself. Using the parts values...

Building an Intel 8008 Computer "Clock"
About every year I design and build a new clock. This years project is a clock based on an Intel 8008 first generation 8 bit microprocessor. Because it is a fairly unique project Im putting more effort into the documentation. Im also totally opening the design, hardware and software, to anyone wanting to learn more about the 8008.
Circuit allows high-speed clock multiplication
In theory, synchronous clock multiplication is an easy task. A simple PLL with two digital dividersone inserted just after the VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator) and the second one placed directly at the input of the phase detectormay do the job. The flexibility of such a configuration allows for clock multiplication by any rational number.
Clock-recovery scheme suits low-SNR systems
A clock-recovery architecture can operate with NRZ digital signals, even at low SNRs. A clock-recovery subsystem is based on a PLL comprising a phase comparator, a loop filter, and a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO).
Crosstalk on the Clock
What is the effect of crosstalk from the digital data signals into the clock signal of a data-conversion system? This is a more obscure problem than crosstalk from digital bits into the analog signal path, which was the subject discussed in the previous article: Part 1 of this series, Effects of Digital Crosstalk in Data Converters.
Delay line has wide duty-cycle range
Today`s digital delay lines can process pulses no shorter than their delay times, and that restriction confines the devices to applications in which the duty cycle remains near 50%. A limited range of available delays (2 to 100 nsec per tap) further limits their use. Longer delay is available with one-shot multivibrators of standard...
Gated clock has duty-cycle control
The circuit in Figure 1 produces clock pulses with variable duty cycle from a gated clock. The output of the circuit, pulse, is always 180° out of phase with the clock input. When the delay-logic elements, IC5 and IC7, have the same propagation delays, the duty cycle of the circuit`s output is 50%. The circuit produces gated clock pulses when...
Because of the nixie-tube is a gas tube, it requires relatively high-voltage supply. Judging from archives, from 180 to 300 volts are used for supply voltage.

Pacer clock saves subroutine calls
This Design Idea outlines an easy-to-implement time-delay routine that requires no subroutine calls and thus avoids possible stack-overflow problems (Listing 1). This method also saves RAM space by requiring in most cases only two variables: the PACER_CLOCK as a free-running counter and another variable introduced at a particular instance (for...

This is a voltage controller oscillator that was designed as a wide range oscillator to generate clock pulses for a stepper motor drive system. It does however have some interesting features. The original application used a stepper motor for its ability to operate over a very wide speed range, so this oscillator is also designed for a very wide...

Real-time-clock chip makes low-power oscillator
Many systems use watch-crystal-based, 32.768-kHz oscillators. In battery-powered designs, the 32-kHz oscillator may consume a fairly high percentage of the total power budget. Reduced power consumption equates to longer battery life, smaller batteries, and smaller products.
System implements digital-clock modulation
The original design used a VCXO (voltage-controlled crystal oscillator) for this function, but this revised design implements an all-digital method that provided additional functions, using a midlevel CPLD from Altera (www.altera.com).

The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
