Abstract

After the general description of the influence of noise on oscillations given in the previous chapter, a general treatment of noise in first-order oscillators is presented in this chapter. Earlier, descriptions of the influence of noise in oscillators in general and first-order oscillators specifically were given by Hajimiri and Lee, Verhoeven, and others, in [1, 2, 4–7, 9, 13–17]. Now, better methods are present for describing the noise behavior of first-order oscillators specifically. Insight has evolved and the theory described in [14] has been extended. The noise behavior of second-order oscillators is covered in Chapter 6.
