Rectangular/triangular wave converter
Many function generators are based on a rectangular waveform generator consisting of a Schmitt trigger and integrator. The triangular signal produced by the tntegrator is then used to form a sinuoidal signal with the aid of a diode network. The eonverter presented here works the other way rou nd. Jt converts the output of a goodquality sine wave oscillator into a reetangular and a triangular signal.
