Programmable oscillator uses digital potentiometers

Posted on Apr 4, 2012

Digital potentiometers are versatile devices; you can use them in many filtering and waveform-generation applications. This Design Idea describes an oscillator in which setting the resistance of two digital potentiometers independently programs the oscillation amplitude and frequency. Figure 1 shows a typical diode-stabilized Wien-bridge oscillator that generates accurate sine waves from 10 to 200 kHz.
