Hi,

I would like to obtain a stable 100mAp-p current in an inductor (680uH) driven with a sine wave of 20Vp-p between 1-10 MHz.
Could anyone suggest any ideas for an amplifier/ voltage to current converter design that would allow me to achieve something like this? Any information leading on the wright track would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

The circuit on the right-hand side of the schematic below might give you an idea. It is a gated constant current source driving an parallel tuned resonant circuit. The resulting current waveform is a sine wave, providing the resonant circuit has a decent Q.

Unless I'm missing something, sadly, it's not going to happen :(. To drive 100mA p-p through 680uH at even 1MHz requires over 400V p-p.
