PMI FREQUENCY DISCRIMINATORS,

such as Model FD-0518-10, translate incoming RF/Microwave signals into a monotonic output voltage that is proportional to the RF/Microwave frequency.  Accurate frequency information can then be derived from the output voltage because a Delay Line Frequency Discriminator takes the Input RF/Microwave signal and produces two RF/Microwave signal components that have a phase shift that is proportional to the original input frequency, at a fixed power input level.  Summing the two signal components together and then using detection techniques produces a detected output voltage that is frequency dependent.  Therefore as the input RF/Microwave signal frequency is varied so does the output voltage of the Delay Line Frequency Discriminator.
