The increase of consumer electronics and communications applications using Radio Frequency (RF) and microwave circuits has implications for oscillator design. Applications working at higher frequencies and using novel technologies have led to a demand for more robust circuits with higher performance and functionality, but decreased costs, size and power consumption. As a result, there is also a need for more efficient oscillators.

This book presents up to date information on all aspects of oscillator design, enabling a selection of the best oscillator topologies with optimized noise reduction and electrical performance. RF and Microwave Transistor Oscillator Design covers:

  • analyses of non-linear circuit design methods including spectral-domain analysis, time-domain analysis and the quasilinear method;
  • information on noise in oscillators including chapters on varactor and oscillator frequency tuning, CMOS voltage-controlled oscillators and wideband voltage-controlled oscillators;
  • information on the stability of oscillations, with discussions on the stability of multi-resonant circuits and the phase plane method;
  • optimized design and circuit techniques, beginning with the empirical and analytic design approaches, moving on to the high-efficiency design technique;
  • general operation and design principles of oscillators, including a section on the historical aspects of oscillator configurations.

A valuable reference for practising RF and Microwave designers and engineers, RF and Microwave Transistor Oscillator Design is also useful for lecturers, advanced students and research and design (R&D) personnel.
