Abstract : The patent describes a device for resolving ambiguity of the start of a split-phase coded data bit. The device is initially synchronized with the zero crossings or polarity transition points in the coded data. A first integrator integrates the signal over one-half the data bit interval, and holds this value. A second integrator integrates the signal over the successive portion of the data bit interval and these two integrator signals are then compared.
