This will change slightly depending on the load and the ICs internal temperature.

In such oscillators, an LC tank circuit is used for producing oscillations. Other constraints are the values of Rt and Ct those determine the output frequency range. The output from U1A is a very linear triangle wave. It does allow the modulating signal to be direct coupled, but that doesn’t necessarily provide any advantages.

So the question becomes, how to build one? Changing the Schmitt trigger resistors will change the output level of the triangle wave, which will affect the distortion when the diode clipper is used to obtain a sinewave.

If the source circuit is direct coupled, it must be capable of providing some current. If the exact ratios are not maintained the waveform will become sawtooth, with different positive and negative going times.

One application that can be very useful is to use a VCO as a sweep generator for testing loudspeakers, crossover networks, equalisers, etc. Voltage controlled oscillator is a type of oscillator where the frequency of the output oscillations can be varied by varying the amplitude of an input voltage signal. I did find a datasheet It requires a single supply, and it must be regulated if you want to synthesise a sinewave from the triangle wave output.

The input can be driven from a ramp waveform or manually, and it’s not at all difficult to obtain a With a 12V supply as shown, the triangle waveform will have an amplitude of 3. Can you recommend a circuit or teach me how to do this? You should provide a schematic of your test setup.

Multisim and Ultiboard

Voltage controlled oscillators can be broadly classified into a linear voltage controlled oscillators and relaxation type voltage controlled oscillators. You may be able to find them advertised on certain on-line auction sites, but they are not trustworthy sources and you have no idea what you’ll get. The output voltage may be stuck at zero or around 10V.

R6 and R7 set the threshold, which is also affected by the output voltage from U1B. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. C1 is selected to give response down to the lowest frequency of interest, and is less than 1.

It can be used to generates square and triangle waveforms simultaneously.

The circuit relies on feedback, and even a seemingly trivial error will stop it from working. The datasheet shows a pair of fixed resistors, but I’ve shown a pot that lets you set the base frequency.

Voltage Controlled Oscillator jojo July 29, 4 Comments. You’d probably be right, but some things are just too interesting to ignore, and this is one of them. Since you can’t get the NE or any equivalent any more, if you want or need a VCO you have to build it using opamps. This is engineering, not poetry. This isn’t something I intend to include, and if that’s what you need you’ll have to look at designs specifically intended for use with synthesisers.


Greater frequency range is possible with careful design. The only thing you can do is to check all wiring very carefully, secure in the knowledge that if everything is wired exactly as shown, it will work. Note that if any opamp is used that cannot swing its output voltage to the negative rail, an extra resistor must be added between the base and emitter of Q1, or it will be unable to turn off.

These alternative versions are not covered here. This depends on what level of accuracy you need. The author Rod Elliott grants the reader the right to use this information for personal use only, and further allows that one 1 copy may be made for reference while constructing the project. A few years ago, you’d simply get an IC that did almost everything for you – the NE was a good example, and needed few external parts to make a simple, high performance VCO.

It isn’t designed for audio use, and has higher distortion than most other opamps. A varactor diode is a type of semiconductor diode whose capacitance across the junction can be varied by varying the voltage across the junction.
