Computer Controlled Frequency Counter

Computer Controlled Frequency Counter

This circuit is a stable frequency counter accurate to 5 significant digits. The range is 0 – 30MHz with an input sensitivity of greater then 100mV. The probe connects to the PC serial port.
So by using the crystal oscillator already present on your PC serial card and software calibration, the Probes’ external circuitry is kept to a minimum. Probe 9 can also be used as a logic probe/analyzer using included software .
