An analytical model for the power spectral density of a voltage-controlled oscillator and its analogy to the laser linewidth theory
We calculate the output power density spectrum for a simple voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) circuit. The power spectral density of the oscillator is composed of a term related to theExpand
