BLOCKING OSCILLATORS are used in applications which require a narrow pulse with sharp
leading and trailing edges. They are used as TRIGGER GENERATORS or FREQUENCY DIVIDERS.
A SAWTOOTH GENERATOR voltage waveform has a linear change in voltage and a fast
recovery time. The linear change in voltage is generated by taking the output from a capacitor. The
sawtooth voltage waveform is used to provide electrostatic deflection in oscilloscopes.
