The design and the performance of a fast iterative analog computer that is based on the use of pulse-ratio modulation representation is presented. The basic element employed in the design of the computing units of the computer is a pulse-ratio modulator. The solution of an eigenvalue problem by the computer is presented as an example of its applications. The results obtained agree well with analytical calculations.
Eigenvalue computation, hybrid dividers, hybrid multipliers, iterative computers, nonlinear oscillators, pulse-ratio integrators, pulse-ratio modulators, pulse-ratio summers.
