However, the voltage at the output of the circuit depends not only on the frequency f and amplitude A of the input signal, which is a significant drawback of this Converter. In addition, when the frequency f in a wide range inevitably there is additional uncertainty associated with the imperfection differentiating chain, since the transmission coefficient of the real differentiating link$HR(f)=2πft/1+(2πft)2$ differs from the coefficient of transmission is ideal differentiating level H 1(f)=2πfτ. The disadvantages include the inability to work of the transducer from the source form of the signal other than the harmonic.

Introduction in the proposed Converter periodic signal in the frequency and period of the second comparator, operational amplifier and shaper signal proportional to the frequency of the input signal, and a driver signal that is proportional to the frequency of the input signal, and the organization of new connections between the functional elements allowed to get on the outputs of the inverter periodic signal in the frequency and period signals with high linearity proportional to the period and the frequency of the input source, changing its parameters in a wide range.

The invention is illustrated the block diagram of the Converter of the periodic signal in the frequency and period are depicted in figure 1, and charts explaining the operation principle of the Converter of the periodic signal in the frequency and period - 2.

The Converter of the periodic signal in the frequency and period contains two comparator 1 and 10, two one-shot 2 and 3, the device sample-hold 4, shaper signal proportional to the frequency of the input signal 12, the operational amplifier 11, the constant voltage source 5, the key 6, the first 7 and second 8 resistors and the capacitor 9, and the entrance ol the formers periodic signal in the frequency and period connected with reinvestiruet the input of the comparator 1 and the inverting input of the second comparator 10, between the comparator output 1 and control input key 6 includes a first one-shot 2, the second one-shot 3 included between the output of the second comparator 10 and the second input of the sample-hold 4, the output of which is connected to the inverter output periodic signal in the frequency and period, and with the input of the shaper signal proportional to the frequency of the input signal 12, the output of which is connected to the second inverter output periodic signal in the frequency and time period to the negative terminal of the DC voltage source 5 is connected in series connected first 7 and second 8 resistors to a common connection point which is connected inverting input of the operational amplifier 11 between the output and inverting input switched capacitor 9, the normally open contact of the key 6 is included between the free output of the second resistor 8 and the output of the operational amplifier 11, the output of which is connected to the first input of the sample-hold 4, while the inverting input of the comparator 1, a non-inverting input of the second comparator 10 and the positive clamp of the DC voltage source 5 is connected to a common bus.

This shaper signal proportional to the frequency of the input signal 12, made of divider 13, the delay unit 14 and the reference-voltage source 15, neg the AUX clamp which is connected to a common bus, and to its positive terminal connected to the input of the delay unit 14, the output of which is connected to the first input of the divider 13, the second input and the output of which is connected respectively with the input and output of the shaper signal proportional to the frequency of the input signal 12.

The Converter of the periodic signal in the frequency and the period is as follows.

On the non-inverting input of the first 1 and the inverting input of the second 10 Comparators receives a periodic signal, for example (figure 2) pure sine wave where A0the amplitude of the signal, N0(t); x=ωt - current value of the angle, expressed in radians.

At the output of the comparator 1, a signal is generated M1(t) of a rectangular shape at the input of the first one-shot 2, and the output of the second comparator 10, a signal is generated M2(t) of a rectangular shape at the input of the second one-shot 3.

The output of one-shot 2 is formed by a sequence of narrow pulses V1(t), attached to the leading edge of the signal M1(t), and output the one-shot 3 is formed by a sequence of narrow pulses V2(t), attached to the leading edge of the signal M2(t).

Because the signals M1(t) and M2(t) shifted in phase by 180 degrees, the pulse sequence V1(t) and V2(t) also Bud is t joined to each other at 180 degrees (figure 2).

Operational amplifier 11, the first resistor 7 and the capacitor 9 form an integrator with transfer function where τ=R·C time constant of the phase shifter 1; R is the resistance of resistor 7; C is the capacitance of the capacitor 9; s is a complex variable.

The second resistor 8 is used to limit the magnitude of the discharge current of the capacitor 9, which occurs with the closure of the key 6.

The pulses from the output of the first one-shot 2 go to the control input of the key 6, and the pulses from the output of the second one-shot 3 - for the second input of the sample-and-hold.

When you open the key 6, the capacitor 9 is charged linearly from the constant voltage source 5 through the resistor 7. Since the operational amplifier 11 is inverting, the output of the operational amplifier 11, that is, at the output of the integrator is formed by linearly increasing voltage L positive polarity (figure 2). The slew rate and maximum level of this voltage will depend on the time constant of the integrator τ and the voltage E1at the input of the integrator from the constant voltage source 5.

Remembering voltage L occurs at the time of filing the gate pulse V2(t)supplied to the second input of the sample-hold 4. The choice of the time constant integrate the and and the voltage will allow at the moment of entering the gate pulse to obtain (2) at the output of the sample-hold 4 signal N 1proportional to the period T of the input signal, N0(t): where k1is the coefficient of proportionality.

The reset of the integrator, i.e. the discharge of the capacitor 9, occurs at the time of filing a narrow pulse V1(t) the control input key 6. At this point there is a rapid discharge of the capacitor 9 to zero, with the magnitude of the discharge current is limited by the size of the small resistance of the resistor 8.

Then the process of charge-discharge capacitor 9, i.e. the formation of a linearly varying voltage, is repeated (figure 2).

The formation of the second inverter output signal N2(t), proportional to the frequency f of the input signal, N0(t), occurs in the shaper signal proportional to the frequency of the input signal 12, as follows.

At the first input of the divider 13 from the reference-voltage source 15 through the delay unit 14 is energized E0=1, and to the second input of the divider 13 is energized N1from the first inverter output periodic signal in the frequency and period.

As a result of performing mathematical operations division at the output of divider 13, that is, the second inverter output periodic signal in the frequency and period, a signal is generated proportional to the frequency f of the input signal, N0(t) where k2=m/k1the proportionality constant, m is the scale factor of the divider 13; f=1/T.

The delay unit 14 is required for proper operation of the divider 13, because it excludes performing a mathematical operation of dividing one value (voltage E0) to another (the voltage of the N1), with the initial moment of time (at start) to zero. The delay τ2(figure 2)generated by the delay unit 14, should exceed the value of the time τ1i.e. τ21.

The Converter of the periodic signal in the frequency and period can work with periodic signals (sinusoidal, triangular, trapezoidal, rectangular) shape, and may be performed in the integrated design, which is an advantage of the present invention. Output characteristics, i.e. according to the generated output signals from the parameters (period and frequency of the input signal, linear in a wide range of their variation, which is also an advantage of the present invention.
