Chapter 2. Novel Conversion Methods for Self-Adaptive Smart Sensors
(Sergey Y. Yurish and Nikolay V. Kirianaki)
The chapter discusses classical (standard counting technique, indirect, interpolation and combined counting methods) and advanced (suitable for self-adaptive smart sensors) methods for frequency (period)-to-code conversion: reciprocal, ratiometric, constant elapsed time (CET), M/T, single (SB) and double buffered (DB), direct memory access (DMA), self-adapting methods of dependent count (MCD) and method with non-redundant reference frequency and methods for duty-cycle – to – digital and phase-shift – to – digital conversion. The comparative analysis is given.
Keywords: frequency-to digital conversion methods; duty-cycle – to – digital conversion methods; phase-shift – to – digital conversion methods; method of dependent count (MDC); method with non-redundant reference frequency.
