Precise wave generator

Posted on Mar 25, 2013

The positive and negative peak amplitude is controllable to an accuracy of about ± 0.01 V by a dc input. Also, the output frequency and symmetry are easily adjustable. The oscillator consists of an integrator and two comparators—one comparator sets the positive peak and the other the negative peak of the triangle wave. If R1 is replaced by a potentiometer, the frequency can be varied over at least a 10 to 1 range without affecting amplitude. Symmetry is also adjustable by connecting a 50 kfi resistor from the inverting input of the LM118 to the arm of the 1 kO potentiometer.

The ends of the potentiometer are connected across the supplies. Current for the resistor either adds or subtracts from the current through Rl, changing the ramp time.
