Hi Fred,

What kind of magnetometer are you considering? I'm not aware of any of
them which indicate field strength by changing the output frequency of
a sinusoid. Did I understand you correctly?

I'm hoping to build a magnetometer.  This would be used primarily in the woods or wilderness.  Roughly one hertz to the next equals something like 25nT field strength (I have a formula that can be fairly easily implemented in the PIC code to calcualte this).  Therefore it is imperative that it be extremely stable and noise free.  A slight amount of jitter would give innacurate data.  I know this is possible because there are commercial units out there that yield .1nT accuracy, I'm just not experienced in this area.  I will try the suggestions here and see how successful I am.  I appreciate all the help you all have offered!Best wishes,FJ> From: RemoveMEpetertwitchspamhotmail.com> To: piclist

Feed the output to a 555 timer arranged as a monostable, period set to half the period of the slowest frequency. That'll give you your sqw output thats pretty much frequency & phase-locked, & fairly noise-immune...> P> > {Original Message removed}
