Welcome to the Oscillator!
Fundamentals
An electronic oscillator is an electronic circuit that produces a periodic, oscillating electronic signal, often a sine wave or a square wave. Oscillators convert direct current from a power supply to an alternating current signal.
Types
There are a lot of different oscillator types, and they are manufactured in many forms, styles, lengths, girths, and from many materials, all with their own applications, characteristics and construction.
Applications
Oscillators are widely used in computers, instrumentation, digital systems, in phaselocked loop systems, modems, marine, telecommunications, in sensors and also in disk drives, and they are also used in engine controlling, clock and to trip computer, stereo, and in GPS systems.
