Scott how do you get this waveform ? RC ?

Yeah, I'd expect 16 levels.  Haven't had a chance to look at my TT3 to see
what it's actually doing.

Here's a snapshot of an OpenTracker's output.  Steps aren't really visible
on this 'scope...

The OpenTracker uses PWM for D/A.  In AFSK mode it uses 4 bits resolution,
and in BPSK mode it's 8.  Works pretty well.  I'll have to do a comparison
of the output waveforms of the TT3, OpenTracker, and MX614 sometime.  For
audio stuff, Yoshimasa Electronic's RAL package is great.  It's got a nice
oscilloscope and FFT analyzer display, plus a signal generator and assorted
other features.

I threw the tinytrak audio onto a CRO and compared it to a sine wave from a
sig gen.

How come a DAC ladder network of 4 resistors only produces 8 steps ?

Should it not end up being 16 steps ?
