Overview

Delivering the best possible solution for phase noise and output power efficiency in oscillators
This complete and thorough analysis of microwave oscillators investigates all aspects of design, with particular emphasis on operating conditions, choice of resonators and transistors, phase noise, and output power. It covers both bipolar transistors and FETs. Following the authors' guidance, readers learn how to design microwave oscillators and VCOs that can be tuned over a very wide frequency range, yet have good phase noise, are low cost, and are small in size. All the essential topics in oscillator design and development are covered, including:
* Device and resonator technology
* Study of noise sources
* Analysis methods
* Design, calculation, and optimization methodologies
* Practical design of single and coupled oscillators
While most of the current literature in the field concentrates on classic design strategies based on measurements, simulation, and optimization of output power and phase noise, this text offers a unique approach that focuses on the complete understanding of the design process. The material demonstrates important design rules starting with the selection of best oscillator topology, choice of transistors, and complete phase noise analysis that leads to optimum performance of all relevant oscillator features. Also included are CMOS oscillators, which recently have become important in cellular applications. For readers interested in specialized applications and topics, a full chapter provides all the necessary references.
The contents of the text fall into two major categories:
* Chapters 1 through 9 deal with a very detailed and expanded single resonator oscillator, including a thorough treatment of both nonlinear analysis and phase noise
* Chapters 10 and 11 use the knowledge obtained and apply it to multiple coupled oscillators (synchronized oscillators)
This text is partially based on research sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the United States Army and conducted by Synergy Microwave Corporation. With the wealth of information provided for the analysis and practical design of single and synchronized low-noise microwave oscillators, it is recommended reading for all RF microwave engineers. In addition, the text's comprehensive, step-by-step approach makes it an excellent graduate-level textbook.

    Hysteresis Mechanism Of Oscillator

    I like this book but there is lack of treatment about hysteresis mechanism in resonator/oscillator due to thermal cycling. Authors should address this problem as a update so that noise analysis will make somesense.

    Designing VCO

    Designing VCO is art. I read this book passionately because of mathematical derivation that leads to chaotoc behavior of the noise ended with pure signal.

    multi-mode and multi-band wireless systems

    book is readable and different than other books on this subject. i like to read this book again and gain because every times it shows new insights about noise analysis for coupled oscillators configurations.classical pendulum approach for coupled oscillator is facinating and worth analyzing for better understandings. the only drawbacks of the book is cost, this book is expensive in comaprisio to other books on oscillators.

    Voltage Controlled Oscillators

    Book is informative but not great because noise dynamics of coupled oscillators (most important chapters of the book)should have been discussed at lengths for clear understanding by readers like us.
