This paper is a monograph on general precision criteria for feedback linear time base circuits. The linearity and stability performance of these devices is evaluated in terms of deviation from an ideal ramp function.
In its entirety, the paper attempts to provide a complete reference for the most commonly encountered aspects of time base precision. Attention is centered on what could be called the "low frequency" case, which most often is valid in applications requiring a high precision time base.
The subject is developed in a number of progressive, cumulative stages. The end products at each stage of the analysis are the equations describing linearity or stability performance for certain time base forms subject to given component idealizations. As the analysis progresses, the component idealizations are successively removed, and the resultant equations seem to change accordingly.
