Three of the four NAND gates in the 4093 are con- nected in series by RC networks. Oscillation is effected by feedback of the output signal of N4 to the input of N2. The logic high levels produced by the cascaded gates in the oscillator circuit are used for biasing one of associated diodes D1, D2 and D3. The relevant diode connects one of frequency-determining capaci- tors Cl-C3 to tone oscillator N1. The audio signal available when S1 is pressed is applied to comple- mentary transistor pair T1-T2 that drives the loud- speaker. The frequency of the emitted tone may be adjusted to individual taste by preset P1. On 894002-11 C) GENERAL INTEREST
