|Jim, You've just made my day ;-)
|First used in a 1MHz function gen I was playing with. Used LM301's and a
|I/2I triangle generator. Never pursued it as it disfigured my neat triangle.
Yep, it does put an ugly "hickey" in the triangle shape, but for clock
restorers, etc., where loop gain in the PLL shouldn't be wandering,
it's a godsend.
