THE combination of transistors and transformers constructed of square hysteresis loop material has produced much useful circuitry outside of the realm of magnetic amplifiers per se. In this paper a highly efficient and extremely precise converter for transforming direct to alternating current, yielding a square-wave output whose frequency is proportional to the d-c input voltage, will be described. From among the many uses of this converter, the following applications will be discussed: 1. a transducer for telemetering systems, and 2. an integrator which has found application as an analogue to digital converter.
