  • Patent number: 7574311
    Abstract: In order to stably measure an input interval time of a pulse signal with high precision, a time interval measuring apparatus includes a reference signal generator, a phase shifter, first and second A/D converters, an error correction unit, an instantaneous phase calculation unit, and an interval time calculation unit. The phase shifter divides a reference signal of a sine wave having a predetermined frequency from the reference signal generator into a first analog signal and a second analog signal having phases shifted to each other. The first and second A/D converters perform sampling of the first analog signal and the second analog signal from the phase shifter, respectively, at an input timing of a pulse signal to be measured, and output a first and second digital sample values.

  • Patent number: 6972603
    Abstract: An MTIE test signal generating apparatus generates a predetermined MTIE test signal. An MTIE measuring unit includes a low-pass measuring filter having a predetermined high-cut characteristic. A cycle-amplitude setting portion sets a cycle corresponding to an observation time of each of desired plural specific points for a predetermined MTIE characteristic and an amplitude corresponding to a difference in the MTIE value between adjacent specific points. Plural signal generating portions generate plural signals each having the cycle and the amplitude having repetitive waveforms and then outputting to each of the desired plural specific points. A holding time setting portion sets a holding time for holding the upper and lower limit values of the repetitive waveforms over the predetermined time so that a signal cycle having at least the shortest cycle of the plural signals is longer than a predetermined time corresponding to the predetermined high-cut characteristic of the low-pass measuring filter.
