Abstract: New fast, accurate universal integrated frequency-to-digital converter (UFDC-1M-16) is described in the article. It is based on the novel patented modified method of the dependent count and has non-redundant conversion time from 6.25 ms to 6.25 ms for 1 to 0.001 % relative errors respectively, comparable with conversion time for successive-approximation and S-D ADC. The IC can work with different sensors, transducers and encoders, which have frequency, period, duty-cycle, PWM, phase shift, pulse number, etc. output.


Keywords: Modified Method of the Dependent Count, Universal Frequency-to-Digital Converter, UFDC-1M-16, Quasi-Digital Sensors
