The December issue of Elektor (Bumper Christmas Issue!) has a circuit on
page 110 for a harmonics generator that looks like it might be quite
It uses two comparators whose output are some sort of push pull
arrangement to supply differential signals to an adder, which cancels even
They use a TLC3702 for the two comparators and a TL081 as the
output driver. Very simple circuit.
For a sine wave input, it should generate odd harmonics but as the duty
cycle of the input signal is changed so the output changes. For a 25% duty
cycle, they claim you get 2nd, 6th and 10th harmonics, but no 4th. As the
thresholds to the comparators affect the output, these could very easily
be made CV operated.
Just thought it might interest someone.
