Oscillator question

  1. May 3, 2005 #1

    i am supposed to design a Sin Wave Generator (1000Hz) using a 3 stage op-amp. (using two integrators and one inverter)

    the hard part is computing the values of the one (1) resistor and two (2) capacitors. me and my classmates have poured over this on paper and with PSPICE, and we really don't know what we're doing. we were thrown a preverbial curveball, don't know which way to go!

    any help is greatly appreciated

    Since capacitors have fewer value flexibility than resistors, select arbitrary values for your capacitors and calculate the value of the resistor.
