[sdiy] Using 2164 with single supply

You might check out the difference between the 555 and the LT1054 (not
LP1054) as far as current draw and grounding. The 555 has issues with
switching states and current draw. Usually you do not want to put the 555
ground with the signal ground because it can cause problems. I do know if
the CMOS versions of the 555 are better. Might be something to do some
research on if you don't already know the issues.

Interesting.  However, I'm thinking that it might be easier in my case to
use a 555 to double the voltage and run the 2164 and associated opamps on a
single supply of about +8V.  There is some good guidance in the datasheet
about how to do that, and my simulations suggest that a 555-based doubler
circuit running on 4.5V should give about 8.25V, so that's enough.  Also,
the circuit is simple and uses things I've already got on hand.
