A pulse-swallowing counter is a component in an all-digital feedback system. The overall pulse-swallowing system is used as part of a fractional-N frequency divider.[1] The overall pulse-swallowing system cancels beatnotes created when switching between N, N+1, or N−1 in a fractional-N synthesizer.[2]
