(Kit or Assembled)

Function Generator

The FG-500 contains a complete function generator capable of producing sine, square and triangle wave forms. The frequency of this generator can be continuously varied from 1Hz to 1MHz in 6 steps. A fine frequency control makes selection of any frequency in between easy. The amplitude of the wave forms are adjustable from 0 to 3Vpp. This complete function generator system is suitable for experimentation and applications by the student. The entire function generator is comprised of a single XR-2206 monolithic IC and a limited number of passive circuit components. Complete with all parts, PC board, schematic, deluxe case with handle and extensive assembly manual.
