Quadrature VCO Module finished

     My question exactly. Don beat me to it. It looks like you have two 
     tri-square generators linked together somehow to get a 90 degree phase 
     difference regardless of frequency. I would presume that they have 
     identical currents from the exponential converter (BTW what kind of 
     expo converter are you using?). Perhaps the zero-crossing of one 
     triangle is used to reverse the direction of the other triangle, like 
     my tri-square sync idea?
