The syncoder is an electronic information processing device based on neurophysiological principles. Its performance can be separated into a summing function and an encoding function. This report discusses the encoding function. Encoding consists of comparing the output voltage of the summing function with an internally generated time varying threshold voltage. When the voltages are equal, an output pulse is generated and the threshold is reset to its initial value. The entire process is then recycled. The response of the encoding function to time variant and to time invariant signals is presented. Also illustrated are the effects of variations in the syncoder parameters. Author
