Abstract : The patent describes a noise-slicing device for substantially eliminating the noise from an input signal consisting of signal pulses riding in a background of noise. The input signal is fed to one terminal of a voltage comparator the output of which is the output of the device. The other input to the comparator is a reference voltage which is the output of a feedback loop. The feedback loop comprises another voltage comparator, a one-shot multivibrator, a summer and an integrator. The inputs to the integrator are the input signal to the device and a proportion of the output of the integrator, which constitutes the feedback signal.
