Default Signal generator schematic

HI... in attachment a simple signal generator schematic based on MAX038 (available also as free sample from Maxim).
I found the schematic on the web but I substituted the output buffer IC with something more simple to find (LF357 instead of EL2001 wich is hard to find for me).
Note: Fine - Coarse - Level are 1K Lin Pot
Hope you'll find this usefull.... I had no time to make a board, but if someone want to help me, I will post schematic in eagle (.sch) format.

Yes, useful.
Can be used to test amplifiers.

If one does not have oscilloscope but a true AC voltmeter
one can test at different frequencies/levels
and try to hear when things begin to get bad.

Do some changes and see if better or worse.

You may be interested in a fuction generator kit that I'm selling:
It's based on the Exar XR2206 chip. All parts are included except for a chassis.

The Analog Devices SSM-2135 would be a good choice for the output buffer. It has lots of guts. I used it to make a headphone amp for my AKG 240 cans.

If you need more drive than that, run a series resistor of about 100 ohms, from the output of the buffer. Then, put a complementary pair of transistors on the output. Simply connect the bases of the transistors to the output pin of the chip and , connect the emitters on the other side of the resistor. The collectors go to their respective supply rails.

You can use 2N3904/3906 pair or, for more heft, 2n2905/3019.
It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you lay the blame.

Five GIGAHertz??? At those sorts of frequencies all kinds of weird things happen, 'normal' circuit boards and components don't work. It's a topic of study all on its own, the area of magicians and RF experts.
