I was wondering if there was anyone who knew how to make a very high frequency sawtooth generator, or possibly very clean high frequecny pulses to discharge a cap for sawtooth generation. everything i have tried is unaccecptable at the frequencies i am interested in.

Um, how are we going to help you if you are having trouble at "the frequencies i am interested in" if you don't tell us what those frequencies are?

That's still not very specific. What's so hard about naming your frequency range? 1-10 MHz? 100-500 MHz? It makes a difference.

Here's a Maxim MAX038 waveform generator circuit for up to 20 MHz.

This circuit probably goes beyond 50 MHz ... cleID=6198

The best thing to do probably is call some of the IC vendors and talk to an applications engineer. They'll know right away if they have a solution, and the advice is free.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
