False Count Correction in Feedback Shift Registers and Pulse Generators Using Feedback Shift Registers.

A pulse train generator is described which includes a shift register with feedback for producing an output pulse for every m clock pulses applied to the shift register stages. The feedback shift register normally has a maximal length -2 to the n power -1, where n is the number of stages. Clock pulses are applied to the shift register until an all-ONE condition is reached thereupon, m-1 additional clock pulses, where m can be less than n, are applied and the states of the register stages can then be sensed. Appropriate gate circuits are added to the shift register, including an n-input inverting AND gate, depending upon the sensed register states, to inhibit certain shifts and to insure that the register is returned to the all-ONE condition upon arrival of every mth clock pulse. The pulse generator referred to above provides means for obtaining an output pulse for every m bits of the code length.
