Displaying Output Frequency on LCD
XR2206 Function Generator kit includes output that can be directly connected to 60MHz Counter kit for measuring and displaying output frequency on LCD display. 60MHz Frequency Meter / Counter measures frequency from 10Hz to 60MHz with 10Hz resolution. It is a useful bench test equipment for testing and finding out unknown frequency of various devices such as oscillators, radio receivers, transmitters, function generators, crystals, etc. The meter provides very stable readings and has excellent input sensitivity thanks to onboard amplifier and TTL converter. It can even measure weak signals from crystal oscillators. With the addition of prescaller it is possible to measure frequency of 1GHz and above.
