Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 439)


In this chapter the theoretical calculation of the phase noise of an LC-tuned oscillator is developed. As we have already stated, this is the only type of integrated oscillator that will be capable of achieving the required high frequency and low noise at a reasonable power consumption.
