"generate stable high -frequency signals  with d flip-flops as digital 
mixers ans all -IC low frequency phase -locked loop", by R.Treadway and 
L.J. Reed, page 78 Electronic design 1 January 1972
Resistot array denounces D flip-flop  mixer page 184 EDN 12 April 1990
digital frequency subtract or  EDN 1 April 1981
Kamil Kraus: Die Arbeitsweise eines einfachen Digitalmischer, Seite 72 
Elektronik Heft 24, 1980 a very good explanation of the function of the 
digital mixer-- in German
Design ideas; D flip-flop sutracs frequencies by Richard Kochis, 
Hewlett-PackardCo Ft. Collins ,CO, Gerald Flachs , New Mexico State 
University, Las Cruces, END 15 April, 10981 page 149
Robert a Pease National Semiconductor Corp : Four ICs subtract 
frequencies, EDN 1 April 1981
"Digitalis keverofokozat tervezese",  Zombay Frerenc, Radiotechnika, 
Seite 244 # 5 1996,  a complete design of the digital mixer with 
detailed theory and example in three consecutive issue of the magazine 
Radiotechnika -- in Hungarian.
By using that literature I designed many frequency synthesizers 
containing D flip-flops as a digital mixer
