Project summary
Project Summary

  • Oscillators are one of the important components in communication systems. They establish transmitter carrier frequency, and drive frequency converters. There are several types of oscillators that are used in commercial and military systems. VCO’s that are tunable to one octave frequency range are available commercially.

  • It is well known that a distributed amplifier provides very wide bandwidth and high gain. Our design of a VCO will incorporate the distributed amplifier in order to allow a tunable frequency of close to one decade frequency (limited by the transistors). This design approach has never been successfully implemented before.
