Abstract : The patent describes a digital frequency comparator for determining the difference in frequency between two time-dependent input waveforms and for futher determining the sign relationship therebetween. Each of the input waveforms is applied to a bistable circuit arrangement which, through the use of logical coincidence gates, modulates the input data into a time-ordered format. A memory bistable circuit in conjunction with further logical coincidence circuit arrangements determines from the time reordered input waveform which one of said waveforms has the greater frequency along with the frequency difference therebetween.
