Resolution enhancer

Resolution enhancer
In the control of electromechanical systems such as a robot arm, positioning is often carried out with a pulse disk and two sensors. One sensor provides data on how many steps have been taken, where as the other provides information as to the direction in which these steps were taken. The present circuit enables the resolution of the pulse generator to be doubled to give an even more accurate position.
