The MAX038 wasn't any relation to the ICL8038.

If anyone goes into the ICL8038 replacement business it would be On Semi,
they appear to be still able to make stuff with the same process.

As for the XR2206, I think there was an Asian knockoff at one stage? (it was
originally designed for FSK modems).

In any case, they were pretty thirsty & not all that perfect.
Maybe a micro would be the go today? Anyone tried tio make a general purpose
voltage controlled audio osc from a PIC?
