can anyone provide me with some schematics for a function generator with only a 147.7 square wave AC signal? Answered

can anyone provide me with some schematics for a function generator with only a 147.7 square wave AC signal? and im trying to make a it as small as possible

If this is for "wireless power", just use a 555 timer.

so if you could get me a schematic of how I could use it

an actual circuit schematic would be more helpful

That WAS an "actual circuit". Plug in the values I worked out, and possibly put a transistor there to drive your coil.

See helps to be concise.

Try this built right the circuit is about the size of a match box.

there are no 147.7kHz crystals or 0.1477MHz

If you cant find a 147.7 try these.

I know you can find 147.5 on the net add a .2 and mix giving you a 147.7

Go higher and PMW down.

Go higher and counter down.

The crystal in the datasheet goes from 30 to 180 kHz

Just order one in 147.7 kHz

Well if you can’t get a crystal get a SN74LS629 voltage controlled oscillator and adjust it to 1477000 Hz then run the 1477000 Hz through a decade counter like a 4017 to give you a 147700 Hz frequency.

Now here is a silly question 147.7 what?

Hz, kHz or MHz.

The thought just struck me be concise or you may not get the answer you want.

sry kHz

How accurate does the output have to be ? Can you make that frequency from dividing a standard crystal frequency by an integer ?

That is a very tight frequency.

You can make it with a 555 timer.

But no matter what way you make it you will need a oscilloscope for fine tuning.
