[sdiy] New VCO... maybe...

That's neat Roman! I enjoyed reading the write up too.
Can you compensate for the reset time in the usual way with a carefully
chosen resistor in series with the integrator capacitor? Or won't that work
in this topology?

The idea behind it was to keep parts count low. I's appealing when one
14-pin chip does basicaly all.
I plan to use comparator and dual opamps instead of quad in SMD version
of it. But I don't expect much improvement, 500ns instead of 2us reset
time by the cost of using completely different ICs would be huge success.
If my estimations are correct, current HF tracking error is 15 cents at
4kHz, while with 0.5us reset it could go down to 4 cents. Some sort of
compensation is probably simpler than speeding up the circuit.
