Abstract : The patent describes a discriminator in which the frequencies of a reference oscillator, a voltage controlled oscillator and a signal source are all converted to dc voltages proportional to their individual frequencies. The voltages from the signal and the voltage controlled oscillator are summed in a summing amplifier and fed to one input of a differential amplifier. The other input of the differential amplifier is fed by the dc voltage from the reference oscillator. The dc output of the differential amplifier is used to control the variable controlled oscillator so that its frequency output will be different from the reference oscillator's frequency output by the frequency of the signal.
