Hello E2E Experts,
I've been using this device for over 40 years mainly as a V-to-F converter.
I put a voltage on pin 9 and monitor the frequency of the square wave on pin 3.
Is there a way to assure that when the input voltage is zero, that the output will also be at zero (i.e... the bottom of the waveform)?
Currently, I isolate my external circuit through a capacitor but would like to eliminate this if possible.
Additional information: What I’m trying to do is avoid draining. Any current from the circuit when there’s no voltage on the input. I’m doing that now with a .22 µF capacitor at the output, but it gives a distorted waveform for the speaker that I’m using. Is there any way to force the output to go to zero ground state through one of the pins, so I can use the output directly through a resistor .
Thank you in advance.
