Mohammadi - - 236 Oscillators and Synthesizers Oscillators active device with power gain (amplifier, negative R) frequency setting tank element Why do we need oscillators Æ to provide a stable frequency output * useful for timekeepers * useful for communications mixing with local oscillator (LO) Important attributes of oscillators * long term stability temp. coefficient of oscillation frequency aging and drift Types of active devices used for oscillators * 3-terminal : MOSFET, BJT * 2-terminal : negative resistance diodes (tunnel diode, Gunn, IMPATT, ) L ECE695F RFIC Prof. S. Mohammadi - - 237 Types of tank element Q Surface Volume = * Quarter-wave Resonators Distributed elements with high * Lumped LC tank * Xtal * SAW (surface acoustic wave devices) Classification of oscillators * near sinusoidal low phase noise (e.g. high Q LC or Xtal Oscillators) * Relaxation Oscillators poor stability, but can have a very large tunning range (application Æ VCO) (e.g. multivibrator, Ring Oscillator) Approaches to Oscillator Design * negative R 2-terminal active element oscillator used at very high microwave frequencies > 50 GHz * feedback 3-terminal active device We will look at the feedback approach when dealing with MOS oscillators ECE695F RFIC Prof. S.
