Generally for the AIM three new block should be added to MT and then four main blocks of the system are distinguished: MT--in our system is represented by ADC; block of processing (BP)--CPU (processor) with memory; inverse element (IE)--Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) with RC-filter; switch--multiplexer.
Inverse element for ADC is digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and it has been built by means of pulse width modulation output of microprocessor.
Additive iterative method (AIM) has automatically corrected integral nonlinearity and it is based on precisely designed inverse element.
