A voltage squaring circuit and analog to digital converter
Pakos, Paul Edward
MetadataShow full item record
An accurate, wideband, voltage squaring circuit suitable for use aboard a spacecraft has been designed, built, and evaluated. The device is based upon the theory of piecewise linear synthesis. A relatively simple scheme for converting analog information to digital form has been fully developed and partially evaluated. It is particularly suited for pulsed systems where the duration between pulses is such that very rapid conversion is not necessary.
