Generator functions, or forms of waves, such oscillators are producing alternating voltages of different shape which correspond in appearance to a mathematical function.
They can be sine, rectangular, triangular, in the form of stairs, etc.. Applied in analog and digital electronics, the measurement and experimental techniques, for educational or professional purposes and as a laboratory device are always welcome in your electronics lab.
The text that follows we suggest a project for a very simple generator functions realized by IC CD4011.
No-electronics hobbyists (the readers of Emiter) who does not wish to have or who did not indicate a need for generating functions in his laboratory for electronics.
My old desire – to build the generator functions with Intersil integrated function generator ICL8038 – not true.
This specialized integrated circuit for that purpose, back in 1984, it was quite expensive and hard to find.
So I decided to build a function generator with conventional CMOS integrated circuit that is popular, cheap and easily available, the circuit CD4011. The device successfully and works well and I was benefited countless times in my elektronics practice.
