Oscillator circuits usually are not taught at technology and engineering schools and universities. Electronics is a vast field; therefore, some areas of expertise, including oscillators, must be acquired in the field. Oscillator Circuits & Projects helps to make this process easier by presenting the information you need to master oscillator circuitry. Oscillator Circuits & Projects was written as a textbook and project book for individuals who need to know more about oscillator circuits. Students, technicians, and electronics hobbyists can build and enjoy the informative and entertaining projects described at the end of this book. Complete information about oscillator circuits is presented in an easy-to-follow manner with many illustrations to help guide you through the theory stage to the hands-on stage. Topics covered in Oscillator Circuits & Projects include: Feedback Sinusoidal Oscillators Multivibrators Using Transistors Saturation Transistor Switching Speed Bistable Multivibrators Multivibrators Using Integrated Circuits Blocking Oscillators Negative-Resistance Devices and Oscillators Bistable, Monostable and Astable Modes Negative-Resistance Oscillators Linear Sawtooth Waveform Generators Unijunction Transistor Circuits LM555 Timer Linear Sawtooth Circuits
