A one-dimensional lattice of tunnel-diode oscillators is investigated for potential high-speed frequency divider. In the evolution of the investigated lattice, the high-frequency oscillation dominates over the low-frequency oscillation. When a base oscillator is connected at the end, and generates oscillatory signals with a frequency higher than that of the synchronous lattice oscillation, the oscillator output begins to move in the lattice. This one-way property guarantees that the oscillation dynamics of the lattice have only slight influence on the oscillator motion. Moreover, counter-moving pulses in the lattice exhibit pair annihilation through head-on collisions. These lattice properties enable an efficient frequency division method. Herein, the operating principles of the frequency divider are described, along with a numerical validation.
