You could use a microcontroller to form a closed loop. Get it resonating at
roughly the right frequency by stimulating from the CPU using one of its
high speed timers. Use a comparitor to create a digital zero-crossing
detector on the feedback winding, and detect the phase difference between
that and what you're driving it with (all you need is a too slow or too fast
comparison). Fine adjust the output frequency, and repeat. Bingo! This does
