This study presents injection pulling effects on a local oscillator (LO) for wireless applications. A phase-locked loop under injection is analyzed in frequency domain to account for the inherent band-pass filtering on an injection signal. A discrete-time analysis is also provided to predict output spectra of the LO pulled by a sinusoidal and modulated(More)
A novel RF sensing circuit for a cognitive radio to sense spectral environment is proposed using injection locking and frequency demodulation techniques. The research starts with deriving a generalized locking equation for oscillators as a theoretical basis, and then develops the sensing principle and circuit architecture to a practical and useful level. To(More)
Elucidating how local oscillator (LO) pulling affects a wireless direct-conversion transmitter that uses constant envelope modulation is of concern for global system for mobile communication (GSM). Therefore, this paper presents a phase dynamic model for a phase-locked loop (PLL) under directly modulated self-injection to evaluate the degraded phase noise(More)
A novel vital-sign sensor with a self-injection-locked oscillator and a frequency demodulator to reduce system complexity and improve sensitivity is proposed. The theory provides a delta-sigma model to account for the excellent signal-to-noise spectral density ratio in a parametric study of the sensitivity performance. Then, the experiments verify the(More)
This paper presents design and linearization techniques for a highly efficient, but nonlinear Class-E power amplifier (PA) applied to linear RF transmitters. To achieve maximum efficiency for Class-E PA operating above gigahertz frequencies, the proposed design theory modifies the classic Class-E condition and considers switch-on and switch-off resistances(More)
This study presents injection-pulling effects on a local oscillator (LO) for wireless applications. A discrete-time analysis is provided to predict output spectra of the LO pulled by a sinusoidal and angle-modulated injection signal. A phase-locked loop synthesizer with an injection signal is analyzed in frequency domain to account for the inherent bandpass(More)
The envelope elimination and restoration (EER) approach developed by Kahn and its modern derivative, a polar transmitter, are well recognized as highly efficient amplification schemes. This paper presents an EER/polar dual-mode transmitter using injection-locked oscillators (ILOs). For an EER operation, an ILO that is combined with a mixer and a low-pass(More)
A phase- and self-injection-locked radar is presented for robust vital-sign detection. The dc offset from the clutter is eliminated by using a dual-tuning voltage-controlled oscillator without complex clutter cancellation techniques. Phase noise analysis shows that the proposed radar has the advantages of both phase-locked oscillators and(More)
A novel cognitive polar receiver that utilizes two injection-locked oscillator stages to extract the modulation envelope and phase components of a received nonconstant envelope modulation signal without using phase-locked-loop-based carrier recovery circuitry is presented. The paper begins with a theoretical analysis of injection locking and pulling(More)
