Class Information
Number: 331/57
Name: Oscillators > Ring oscillators
Description: Subject matter wherein the oscillator comprises three or more active elements connected or cascade, the output of one active element being connected to the input of another active element to form a closed chain or loop, the active elements being so connected and biased that they are caused to switch from a conducting to a nonconducting state in succession, cyclically, thereby generating self-sustained oscillations.
