ICL8038 Precision Waveform Generator/Voltage Controlled Oscillator - 50 Pack


Now available from PMD Way is the ICL8038 Precision Waveform Generator/Voltage Controlled Oscillator IC.

This classic part is an interesting chip along the lines of the classic XR2206, in that the ICL8038 can be used as a monolithic integrated circuit capable of producing high accuracy sine, square, triangular, sawtooth and pulse waveforms with a minimum of external components.

The frequency (or repetition rate) can be selected externally from 0.001Hz to more than 300kHz using either resistors or capacitors, and frequency modulation and sweeping can be accomplished with an external voltage.

The ICL8038 is fabricated with advanced monolithic technology, using Schottky barrier diodes and thin film resistors, and the output is stable over a wide range of temperature and supply variations. These devices may be interfaced with phase locked loop circuitry to reduce temperature drift to less than 250ppm/C.

More information:

Please note that these are compatible ICs. The originals are no longer being manufactured. We recommend the use of IC sockets for permanent installations.
