It outputs a 1k fixed frequency with either sine, triangle, square wave and integrator with a output level trimmer/pot adjustable from 0 to 100mVRms and requires a 9v supply

Hahaha good eye, ya I was at Sayal in Toronto trying to find the most affordable/easy signal generator as I was starting to get tired of having to strum my guitar.

I’m going to attempt doing my first layout and posting it in here, hopefully it’s a tool that will come in handy for other people as well. Especially those of us who are not lucky enough to have an electronics shop in they’re city

It works A LOT better then any of the signal generator projects I've tried up too now! Not perfect but what sine wave is.

The only thing is I had to swap out some of the capacitors on mine for %1 tolerance instead of the %20 they supply with the kit.

ive been side tracked for the past several day's but I do still plan on loading my attempt at a vero layout lol

I've tried resizing it but for some reason it won't work. I figure for $10 CND its a great little tool that I'm surprised more people do not use them

Here's what I'm using (layout needs to be resized):

Connect a notebook speaker to "spk+" and "spk-" and a resistor lead to "amp_in". Connect a guitar cable to "injetor out" and "gnd" and plug this cable into effect input. There you go, portable audio probe.

That’s very well laid out, I love seeing what other people come up with and I’ve really started appreciating test gear a lot more in these past few months. That’s a really great project, I want to do something for their Signal injector/tracer kit as it looks really useful was well

If you have talked to me a few months ago I definitely would have been completely ignorant towards
