Title: N$sup 2$ SCALER

Abstract

Apparatus are described for indicating the numerical square of a plurality of random occurring input pulses occurring within a number of selected intervals and comprise an input storage scaler having a selected number of cascaded scaler stages, a follow-up scaler having a number of stages equal to the input storage scaler, a comparison circuit coupled between like output circuit points of each input scaler stage and its corresponding follow-up scaler stage, a local pulse source, a squaring scaler comprising a number of cascaded stages equal to twice the number of input storage scaler stages, half of said squaring scaler stages corresponding in order to the order of the input storage scaler stages and having a gated input, means for opening the gated inputs of those squaring scaler stages which correspond to triggered input storage scaler stages, and means for coupling the local source of pulses to aIl of the gates.
