How do you sketch a signal given by x(t) = A(t/T) for time period 0 to T? Does t/T simply denote that the signal covers entire duration of T?

Does t/T simply mean that the signal has magnitude A over the entire "T" duration? Or does it mean that it covers only a fraction? How will it look? I tried assuming A to be some magnitude ...

Triangular waveform with low noise

I have a task to generate a triangular signal with variable amplitude and support. The figure shows the type of signal and what parameters I want to change (“d” and “o”). Moreover, I need to change ...

AC DC adapter sawtooth current draw above rated value

I will be using AC DC wall adapter to power the flyback converter. Power adapter is rated 15V@3A = 45W. The question is, can I draw peaks over 3A if I stay below 45W on average? For example, with the ...

Understanding sawtooth wave harmonics

I've been playing synthesizers for a while and I'm trying to understand their math and electronics better. The sawtooth is one of the three common waveforms on most subtractive synths. The waves are ...

How to amplify sawtooth wave?

I have to amplify the sawtooth wave from 0-7V to 0-14V with its waveform intact. I tried to amplify the wave using op-amps, MOSFET but the waveform shape changes. I'm new to analog circuit design, it ...

How to design a sawtooth wave generator? (Required specification of sawtooth wave 0-14V and 50kHz)

I tried using ICs like the ICL-8038 and the 555 time. It didn't work out because of the supply voltage constraint. I also tried using an op-amp (LTC6244) based circuit. It gave a distorted wave at ...

Load curve control via differential pair

Last few weeks I have been designing a circuit, which is inputted with saw wave and outputs (amplification fairly linearly if possible) amplified voltage across two loads, where load voltage/current ...

Sawtooth waveform used for wireless battery charging

Why don't we use sawtooth AC waveforms instead of the sinusoidal ones? Since the rate of change of voltage is steady for a purely resistive circuit the rate of change of current is costant-> linear ...

Sawtooth VCO DC offset issues

[Apologies in advance for possible misuse of terminology. I don't have any formal education in EE and am mostly self taught, so I may be lacking in some fundamentals.] I am trying to design a discrete ...

How to use an op-amp (that only uses ground and positive voltage to operate) to create a sawtooth/triangle wave generator?

The design I have in mind will be battery operated, so I have found the TL972 (Datasheet Here) which only operates from 0 - 12 V. What I want this op-amp to do is to create a sawtooth/triangle wave ...

Miller integrator ramp generator?

In a page on Ramp Generators I found this peculiar circuit which is said to be superb in its linearity. But I can't make sense of it. It doesn't discuss any of the actual R and C values. I can see ...

A sawtooth oscillator breaks down at higher frequencies

Here is a nice and straight-forward sawtooth oscillator that I learned from this video. It is simple and nice. When we come to higher frequencies though, I am dealing with very finicky adjustments ...

What would be the simplest BJT based *linear* ramp generator?

Let's say I have a 74LS161 based counter, and I want an analog ramp generator which will linearly increase until the ripple-carry-output goes back down (so that the ramp goes up the entire time the ...

I need diodes to build a R-2R ladder DAC from original TTL chips (not Arduino) don't I?

I am thinking through how I could turn my analog oscilloscope with X-Y mode and Z input in the back into a simple computer monitor. I am learning about generating a proper sawtooth with a constant ...
