Monostable makes low-cost F/V converter -  02/18/99 EDN Design Idea   (Collection of Design Ideas, scroll to find this one)   The circuit in Figure 1 is a low-cost frequency-to-voltage (F/V) converter. Using a monostable (one-shot) multivibrator, the circuit accepts an open-collector square wave that varies in frequency from 0 to 10 kHz. The one-shot produces a pulse of a fixed width each time the input signal triggers it. The result is a variable-frequency, variable-duty-cycle signal at the output of the one-shot. The time constant determined by R2C1, 100 µsec, determines the width of the pulses the one-shot produces. . . .  [by Mark Brinegar, Dart Controls Inc, Zionsville, IN]
