    Hi all, I need an integrated waveform generator such as MAX038 from
    Maxim, but with a wider band (almost two times, or more, wider). Does
    anyone know a chip that works like this? Thanks.

    Not a single chip solution, but you can do it with a software DDS running on
    a microcontroller, up to 200 kHz or so. I've got an example on my web site.
    With a 20 MHz ATtiny2313 it should go up to over 400 kHz.

    Do you specifically need sine waves - or will square waves do?

    Hi, thanks for your reply.
    I need a sine wave up to 40 or 50 MHz. MAX038 maaximum frequency is 20 MHz.

    Look at the AD9850 etc. from Analog Devices.

    I never used a DDS, I know that it's the best way, but I'm looking for
    something else. If you tell me that it's simple, then I'll try. Wher
    can I find a good tutorial for programming a DDS in order to obtain a
    sinewave in a large frequency bandwidth (e.g. 1-100 MHz)? And, above
    all, how much will I spend for a DDS?
