You could always cheat using a simple frequency doubler.
Use a pair of diodes to create a fullwave rectified sinewave followed by
a comparator for a sinewave input.
A simple feedback loop can be used to ensure the comparator output duty
cycle is 50%.
Use a circuit that generates a pulse on every transition for a square
Low pass filtering the square wave can be used to produce a waveform
that the comparator above could work with.
A feedback loop could be used to maintain the comparator output duty
cycle at 50%.
