cross-correlator

cross-correlator

[¦krȯs′kär·ə‚lād·ər]
(electronics)
A correlator in which a locally generated reference signal is multiplied by the incoming signal and the result is smoothed in a low-pass filter to give an approximate computation of the cross-correlation function. Also known as synchronous detector.
