The paper examines systematically the error properties of binary rate multipliers (BRMs). Simple close-form expressions for the maximum pulse-position and counting errors are given for a number of timing variants. It is seen from the paper that the so far reported estimates of the errors, valid for a certain timing variant, are too optimistic in general. A brief discussion of the effect on the errors of a frequency divider applied to the output of the BRM is also provided.
