N2 - We address the problem of existence of periodic solutions for the differential delay equation εẋ(t) + x(t) = f(x(t - 1)), 0 < ε≪ 1, with the Farey nonlinearity f(x) of the form f(x) = {mx-Bifx>0, {mx+Aifx≤0 where m < 1, A > 0, B > 0. We show that when the map x → f(x) has an attracting 2-cycle then the delay differential equation has a periodic solution, which is close to the square wave corresponding to the limit (as ε → 0+) difference equation x(t) = f(x(t - 1)).
