frequency doubler
i need a simple design of how to make the input frequency become double ...any circuit designer can help? i will appreciate if someone can give me a hand on this.

frequency multiplier circuit diagram
You need to specify your input frequency range.

simple frequency doubler
a mixer followed by a highpass filter?

frequency doubler design
Hi
The are many methods for doubling a frequency
it depends on
1 the type of signal (square or sine or ...)
2 The range of the frequency (very low, low, medium, high, very high, hyper...)
3 The stability of the frequence you want to double (is it a single frequency ar many frequencies) what is the frequency range?
Methods I know are:
1 PLL (Phase locked loop)
2 Non linearity to produce hamonics of the signal (full wave rectifier for example) followed by an adequate filter
2 Mixer (in reality mixers translate the frequency, but you can considerate that Fx2 is the same as F+F) this method is also non linearity...
3 monostables trigged by rise edge and fall edge of the signal (square)
...
Hi

I forgot...
If your signal is a random signal (speech for example) you can use FFT (fast fourrier transform) to double its frequency
it depends also if you want a real time response or not
good luck

PLL seems good solution for you.

is this PLL a frequency multiplier also? to get a 50% duty cycle, i should use another flipflop circuit to divide the signal ? help please....thanks

can you give a circuit diagram for each of the approach that you gave?
1. for PLL, what simulator can get the component? cadence? Hspice or pspice?
2. full rectifier.....is this AC current to DC current? can this get 50% suare wave
output?
3. for mixer....is this the one Xored 2 signal( one been delayed)?
4. can you give example for the FFT option?
thanks timo67 ...your help is very helpul to me.

mixer as frequency doubler
100MHz is a relative high frequency
for this reason I think the advice of bunalmis is wise
If you need a very precise duty cycle of 50% you can for example doubel you requency twice untill 400MHz and then divize it by 2 with a JK frequency divider.
good luck

pll frequency doubler
Use a phase lock loop,
