The resolution of an inductosyn transducer is determined by the printed circuit technology. With normal printed circuit technology, an inductosyn transducer can be made in a small size with, for example, 200 cycles per revolution. To increase the number of cycles per revolution would normally require finer artwork and/or a larger physical size. The drawing below shows in block diagram a circuit wherein the cycles per revolution of an inductosyn transducer is increased without artwork or size changes. Referring specifically to the drawing, when signal "X" moves one transducer cycle, the "D" flip flop will output 16 evenly spaced clock pulses I'P''.
