function generator components
When I look inside a 555 timer, I see the window comparators and the latch.

I note the window is set by internal resistors and referenced to the supply rails, however, I can imagine a triangle generator whose rate similarly tracks the supply rails.

I feel diode steered current sources directly charging a capacitor may be good for higher frequency than integrators. (but look at the old wavetek 10x series)

Previously we looked at the electronics and sensors involved in data acquisition systems (DASs). Now we look at what to do with the raw ADC data once it is acquired.
This is a tutorial presentation of principles of instrumentation that is typically multi-channel, medium to high resolution (12 to 20 bits) and relatively slow - slower than oscilloscopes in sample rate
Continuing the chat from last time, we turn now to a circuit-related topic, that of current waveforms. The typical converter input waveform is shown with a static (dc) component and a ripple (ac) component
Semiconductor companies have now had fully-differential amplifiers in their product lines for a few years, though these amplifiers have been in leading-edge electronics for decades. These diff-amps are differential not only at their input but also at their output, doubling output range.
