Abstract : The patent relates to a circuit used for the purpose of decoding trapezoidal serial waveforms of the Manchester waveform type which is generally a 6-36 bit trapezoid serial wave, or the like. The circuit uses the zero crossovers of the waveforms to provide the decoding capability by initiating a shift register clock pulse, and its circuitry is such that the zero crossovers at the beginning or end of each bit length are ignored.
