- Signal Generator -
The LM348 chip is the basis for a signal genrator which will create
three different wave forms, a (pseudo) sine wave, a square wave, and a triangle wave.
It can be made to produce a wide range of frequencies. The frequency it generates is inversely proportional
to resistance placed in the circuit.
Signal generator circuit
A circuit diagram for the signal generator is shown above.
Construct your signal generator on a breadboard.
If you need more detail, you can look at a breadboard
Attach a headphone jack where speaker leads are
indicated, so you can listen to the tone which this circuit produces.
The heart of the signal generator is an integrated circuit chip LM348-D.
Other resistors and capacitors are need to produce the wave forms.
The list of parts contains mostly resistors.
Test your Signal Generator by attaching earphones to hear the tone it produces.
Now measure its frequency with an oscilloscope
