Transistorized regenerative frequency divider

High and Ultrahigh Frequency Measurements


Regenerative transistorized frequency dividers have a highly-stable phase characteristic with the supply voltage and ambient temperature varying over wide ranges. The above divider is not inferior in its phase stability to highly stable tube frequency dividers.

The use of transistors and miniature components makes it possible to produce economical, reliable and small frequency dividers for quartz clocks. The lower power consumption of transistorized dividers makes it possible to feed them from storage batteries of a relatively small capacity.

In transistorized circuits it is advisable to use inductive phase shifters for varying the quartz-clock readings.
