Crystal-controlled signal source

Posted on Dec 21, 2012

This general purpose signal source serves very well in signal-tracing applications. The output level is variable to more than 1 Vrms into a 50 O load. Almost any crystal in the 1 to 15 MHz range can be used. Ql forms a Colpitis oscillator with the output taken from the emitter. A capacitive voltage divider (across the 2.2 emitter resistor) reduces the voltage applied to the buffer amplifier, Q2.
