  • In that paper a detailed comparison between the differential Colpitts oscillator and the well-known cross-coupled oscillator topology is presented. Frequency tuning is realized by using a combination of switchable capacitors and an analog varactor diode. The main focus is to minimize the phase noise, which is a limiting factor in the realization of RF-radios for modern communication systems. Other criteria are power consumption, tuning range and chip area. The charge-phase transfer function… CONTINUE READING
