This paper presents a comparison between existing digital subharmonic generators and a new algorithm developed with the intention of having a more pronounced subharmonic frequency and reduced harmonic, intermodulation and aliasing distortions. The paper demonstrates that by introducing inversions of a waveform at the minima and maxima instead of the zero crossings, the discontinuities are mitigated and various types of distortion are significantly attenuated.
