  • Patent number: 8067974
    Abstract: A signal transformation arrangement comprises a first input tap (1) to receive a first input signal (IN_P), a first output terminal (3) to provide a first output signal (OUT_P) and a first coupling circuit (10) which couples the first input tap (1) to a first energy storing device (11) depending on a first clock signal (CLK—1) and which couples the first energy storing device (11) to the first output terminal (3) depending on a first inverted clock signal (XCLK—1). The signal transformation arrangement further comprises a second coupling circuit (20) which couples the first input tap (1) to a second energy storing device (21) depending on a second clock signal (CLK—2) and which couples the second energy storing device (21) to the first output terminal (3) depending on a second inverted clock signal (XCLK—2).

  • Patent number: 7928810
    Abstract: The oscillator arrangement (1) comprises a differential amplifier (13) and also a first and a second terminal (2, 3). The first terminal (2) of the oscillator arrangement (1) can be coupled via a quartz resonator (10) to the second terminal (3) of the oscillator arrangement (1) and via a first capacitor (11) to a reference voltage terminal (8). The second terminal (3) of the oscillator arrangement (1) can be coupled via a second capacitor (12) to the reference voltage terminal (8). The differential amplifier (13) is connected at a first input (14) to the first terminal (2) of the oscillator arrangement (1) and at an output (16) to the second terminal (3) of the oscillator arrangement (1). The second input (15) of the differential amplifier (13) is connected via a direct voltage source (21) to the reference voltage terminal (8).
