A V-band Differential SiGe VCO with varactor-less tuning

Abstract

A SiGe V-band voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) with varactor-less tuning is presented. The frequency tuning of the VCO is accomplished using the C<sub>CB</sub> capacitance of the core transistors themselves. Removing the varactors within the VCO is particularly useful for millimeter-wave applications since varactors significantly degrade the quality… (More)
