Multistable bridge element for pulse counters
The above circuit can be used as a multistable pulse-position storage element in designing decimal counting decades for digital and computer devices, and also a frequency divider with a large ratio from 2 to 100.
By utilizing the stabilizing properties of the bridge circuit, the scaling factor is maintained at a constant value in the temperature range of −20 to + 60°C with supply voltage variations of ±2% and replacement of circuit components.
Bearing in mind the advantages and simplicity of this circuit it is advisable to organize mass production of such elements with integrated microcircuits.
