Abstract

Clock pulses are derived, with minimum start-up time, by asynchronously gating the output of a free-running square-wave oscillator to provide a series of whole oscillator cycles starting with the first succeeding oscillator excursion following the occurrence of the gating pulse. The first succeeding oscillator excursion results in a positive gated output pulse irrespective of whether the first succeeding oscillator excursion is positive-going or negative-going.
