Simple phase detector

Posted on Jul 8, 2012

The operation of the circuit is like an enabled inverter, that is, the output Y = B provided A is high. If A is low, output is low (independent of the state of B). When the signals A and or B1 are connected to the inputs A and of this gate the output Y is a pulse train signal (shown a Y or Yl) which has a pulse duration equal to the phase difference between the two signals. The circuit is directly suitable for phase difference measurement from zero to 180°. This performance is similar to the circuits like the Exclusive OR gate used for this purpose.

With this method leading and lagging positions of the signals can also be found using an AND gate. Phase difference measured along with the leading and lagging information gives complete information about the phases of the two signals between zero and 360°.
