### Wienbridge Oscillator Circuit

Some electronic hobbyists are not interested in wienbridge oscillators because of the difficulty in tuning it to the desired frequency.In order to change the frequency of a wienbridge, one must adjust either two resistors or two capacitors simultaneously.

This problem, however, can be avoided by using the circuit featured here. It is still a wienbridge oscillator but its frequency can be varied through a single potentiometer.

The frequency (fo) can be found mathematically by:

fo = 1/(2pi RC SQR(a))

where R= R2= R3= R4= R5 and C= C3= C4 and a= (P1+R1)/R1. The maximum stable amplitude can be adjusted up to a level of 3.5V.

The given component values allows the oscillator to generate frequencies between 350 Hz and 3500 Hz (3.5KHz). Potentiometer P1 varies the output frequency.
