Paper Abstract

Even though the frequency measurement technique is well established, converting frequency to a digital word for real time systems is not an easy task. The task is further complicated by the absence of any standard peripheral integrated chip for this application. In this paper, an Application Specific Integrated Circuit has been realized for a successful frequency to digital conversion. The chip adopts an innovative frequency measurement technique called the `hybrid technique'. The chip was designed with very stringent specifications to meet military and civilian applications. Extensive software simulations were done to ensure the proper functioning of the chip.
