Krylov subspace techniques in harmonic balance simulations become increasingly ineffective when applied to strongly nonlinear circuits. This limitation is particularly important in the simulation if the circu it has components being operated in a very nonlinear region. Ev en if the circuit contains only a few very nonlinear components, Krylov methods using(More)
A new computational concept of timing jitter is proposed that is suitable for exploitation in circuit simulators. It is based on the approximation of computed noise characteristics. To define jitter value the parameter representation is used. The desired parameters are obtained after noise simulation process in time domain by minimization of integral(More)
A new approach to analyze injection locking mode of oscillators under small external excitation is proposed. The proposed approach exploits existence conditions of the solution of HB linear system with degenerate matrix. The method allows one to obtain the locking range for an arbitrary oscillator circuit with an arbitrary periodic injection waveform. The(More)
A new method for computation of timing jitter in a PLL is proposed. The computational method is based on the representation of the circuit as a linear time-varying system with modulated stationary noise models, spectral decomposition of stochastic process and decomposition of noise into orthogonal components i. e. phase and amplitude noise. The method is(More)
A new numerical technique for periodic small signal analysis based on harmonic balance method is proposed. Special-purpose numerical procedures based on Krylov subspace methods are developed that reduce the computational efforts of solving linear problems under frequency sweeping. Examples are given to show the efficiency of the new algorithm for computing(More)
