Design Method Predicts RF Oscillator Noise (.PDF Download)

Dec. 29, 2015

Noise plagues most RF/microwave systems at some level. The majority of system-level designers aim to achieve the highest signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) possible to ensure optimum reception of signals in, say, receivers. Minimizing noise usually starts with the signal source, whether it’s an oscillator or an oscillator with a phase-locked loop (PLL) in a frequency synthesizer...
