ELG4135 Electronics III Course Project Low Cost, Low Power Function Generator By Md Amirul Bhuiya Norman Escobar December 1, 2006

2
Introduction ► What are Function Generators? Function Generators can produce Square, Triangular and Sinusoidal waveforms over a wide range of frequencies and amplitudes as well as modulated waveforms (AM, FM, FSK) and signal noise. ► Why a Function Generator? Essential tool in Electrical Engineering Can be implemented with basic inexpensive components Most circuits needed have a direct relevance to the course ► Project Objectives To build a low-cost Function Generator capable of: ► Producing Square, Triangular and Sine waveforms with amplitude control ► adjusting the waveform frequencies up to 1 MHz or higher ► Producing a Sine wave with minimal THD (ideally under 1%). ► The function generator should be low cost

► Practical Issues Cost of components alone is $106.30 not including power source Practical frequencies of the function generator are limited to above 30 kHz for the sine wave and below 500 kHz for the triangle wave due to the discharge control MOSFET which is too slow to turn off Output amplifier induces overshooting on square wave at higher frequencies ► Advantages Produces all the basic requirements of a function generator Good frequency range Good amplitude range Simple to design and build Expandable for modulation Minimal Circuit footprint Conclusion
