    The HP 5316B is a 7-digit reciprocal counter. Below 10 MHz, the counter measures the input signal period, then computes and dispays the reciprocal frequency with 7 digits of resolution in one second for signals as low as 0.1 Hz. Above 10 MHz, the counter automatically performs as a conventional counter.

    Time averaging boosts performance to 10 ps resolution.
