A method for processing the signals of eddy current flaw detection is proposed. It is based on determination of the number of zeros of the analyzed signal in the sliding mode. The method features low resources capability, has simple circuit implementation and can be used in automated systems of eddy current nondestructive testing. 13 Ref., 1 Tabl., 4 Fig.
