CHAPTER 15

Synchronization and Frequency Division

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After reading this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Understand the principle of frequency synchronization and division using the UJT relaxation circuit
  • Describe the methods to achieve frequency synchronization and division in other relaxation circuits like astable and monostable multivibrators
  • Realize the circuit that eliminates jitter in a relaxation divider
  • Understand the principle of operation of the circuits that achieve frequency synchronization and division using symmetric circuits
