A/D Using Voltage To Time Conversion

The Block diagram shows the basic voltage to time conversion type of A to D converter.

A/D Using Voltage To Time Conversion:

 

The Block diagram shows the basic voltage to time conversion type of A to D converter. Here the cycles of variable frequency source are counted for a fixed period. It is possible to make an A/D converter by counting the cycles of a fixed-frequency source for a variable period. For this, the analog voltage required to be converted to a proportional time period.

As shown in the diagram a negative reference voltage -VR is applied to an integrator, whose output is connected to the inverting input of the comparator. The output of the comparator is at 1 as long as the output of the integrator Vo is less than Va.

At t = T, Vc goes low and switch S remains open. When VEN goes high, the switch S is closed, thereby discharging the capacitor. Also the NAND gate is disabled. The waveforms are shown here.
