voltage to frequency converter applications

I have an application where a v to f converter is needed. "AD654"
I have 1 Volt coming in on Vin. And I want a desired Fout of 100Hz (min) - 2000Hz (Max). How do I use this part to obtain my desired Fout? Any/All help appreciated.

v to f converter

This called the Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO)

I prefer to think of them as voltage-to-phase integrators.

Yes I am familiar with VCO operation. I have a requirement for a square wave output. Do VCO's typically give square wave outputs?

I see your point. It would be impossible to turn a sine wave output into a square wave output.

You'll find the design equations in the AD654 datasheet.

I'm connecting pin 4 of the V to F converter(AD654) to pin 7 of the SA636. Looking at the pin function of pin 7 of the SA636 what would be the max voltage? Vcc?
