John's TADD-2-mini  uses the Wenzel sine-to-square converter. It performs very well but requires +10 V.
I'm looking for a solution that works at 5 V (e.g., USB powered) and also uses fewer parts. Wenzel also mentions using a differential line receiver . That would be an ideal single-chip 5 V solution for me but the two parts he mentions, MC1489  and SN55182 , don't appear fast enough for a 10 MHz input.
Can any of you circuit experts suggest some line receivers that would work? Maybe DS9637 ? This isn't for cesium work so it doesn't have to be quite as good as the TADD-2.
