Measuring phase difference

Posted on Oct 6, 2012

This method is capable of measuring phase between 0 to ±180°. The generated square waves A and are fed to a D flip-flop which gives an output C equal to logic 1 when input 1 leads input 2 and equal to logic 0 in case of lagging. When C = logic 0, the output of the amplifier F will be positive proportional to the average value of the output of the EX-OR. When C = logic 1, F will be negative and also proportional to by the same factor. Hence, the output of the meter is positive in case of lagging and negative for leading.
