Circuits Designed by Dave Johnson, P.E. :
  • CIRCUIT FORMS DIVIDE BY 1.5 COUNTER
    Two inexpensive ICs divide a TTL clock signal by 1.5. By following the circuit with another flip/flop, you could also generate a divide by three function.

74ACT74 makes low-skew clock divider -  12/17/98 Issue of EDN  Serial-data systems often generate an internal clock at twice the data rate for mid-bit sampling or for generating bi-phase codes. External equipment and some internal processes require a clock that runs at the data rate. Simply dividing the twice-rate clock with a flip-flop generates a data-rate clock that is skewed by one logic delay with respect to the input.  This delay can be a significant fraction of the bit period. You can use specialized PLL-based low-skew divider chips.....Page includes several designs.  Scroll to find this one..... [Design Idea by JTom Napier, Consultant, North Wales, PA]
Amplifiers perform precision divide by 2 circuit -  6-Mar-03 Issue of EDN  The classic implementation of a voltage-halving circuit uses two equal-value resistors. Using 1% resistors provides a divider output with 2% accuracy. For most applications, this performance is cost-effective andthan adequate. However, when you need extreme precision, this approach requires correspondingly accurate resistors and can become expensive.....

Charge-pump circuit divides by two -  02/18/99 Issue of EDN  Small size and efficiency approaching 100% make switched-capacitor charge pumps popular for voltage doubling and inverting in miniature dc-dc applications. Few are aware, however, that most charge pumps can halve as well as double or invert an input voltage. The increasing adoption of low-voltage logic makes this 2 capability useful for generating low-voltage supplies in portable.....Page includes several designs.  Scroll to find this one.....

Cheap 40kHz Clock -  ASCII format.  This circuit has worked for me in many applications. (it might be an idea to buffer the signal befor using it. (There are still 5 unused gates in the 'C14) (electronic circuit added06/06/06)
Circuit Conditions Variable Duty Cycle Clock -  02/17/97 EDN-Design Ideas.....David Albean, Thomson Consumer Electronics, Indianapolis, INA simple enhancement of an earlier Design Idea ("Delay line implements clock doubler",EDN, July 18, 1996, pg 102) implements a variable-duty-cycle clock-signal conditioner. The circuit accepts an input clock of any duty cycle and generates any desired duty cycle at the output. You need to add only one flip-flop to the earlier design to generate an arbitrary-duty-cycle output. You can use the circuit to correct a non-50% input to a 50% output or to create a non-50% output from any arbitrary input duty cycle..... [Edited by Bill Travis & Anne Watson Swager]
Circuit divides frequency by N+1 -  11-Jul-02 Issue of EDN  Digital frequency dividers usually use flip-flop stages that connect the Q pin to the D data-input pin of the following stage.  This configuration creates a binary waveform that you can feed back to the input. You can divide any integer lower than 2N with minimal stages, where N is the number of stages..... [Design Idea by Bert Erickson, Fayetteville, NY]

Precision divide-by-two analog attenuator needs no external components -  17-Mar-05 Issue of EDN  Many modern A/D converters offer only a 5V input range, and using these converters with a 65V or larger input signal gives the designer a problem  how to discard half of a good analog signal without introducing errors and distortion. To solve the problem, you can use an attenuator comprising two operational amplifiers and two resistors (Figure 1].....
