Abstract:

The tunnel diode binary counter circuit reported by Kaenel and subsequently discussed by many authors is described. The mode of operation of the circuit is explained in terms of a piece-wise linear model for the tunnel diode. The switching trajectories obtained using a low frequency analogue simulation of the circuit are used to discuss the bias and trigger conditions to be employed. A method of intercoupling several stages using transistors and tunnel diodes is suggested. Author
