Linear Vco

This VCO uses an LF356 op amp to produce a linear frequency vs. voltage characteristic using the CMOS HC4046. The frequency rang

e can be changed by changing the capacitor connected between pins 6 and 7 of the HC4046. Using the HC4046`s internal transistor instead of an external component achieves the linearization in diagram.
