Simulating Multi-tone Free-Running Oscillators with Optimal Sweep Following
A new method for the simulation of circuits with widely-varying time scales is given. The method makes a splitting of the behaviour of the circuit in a fast-varying and a slowly-varying component. The method is attractive because it can handle frequency modulated (FM) circuits, unlike existing methods. Numerical results are given.
