Abstract

The frequency range of solid state oscillators has increased to the point where classical low frequency design and analysis techniques are no longer completely adequate. Development of very high frequency emitter coupled logic (ECL) gates has provided a new active device that may be used in high frequency oscillators. In light of these facts the objective of this study is to develop an analysis of high frequency ECL gate oscillators. This analysis will be based on the s-parameters of the gate and those of the feedback network. The relationship between the s-parameter description of an oscillator and negative resistance oscillators is also presented. A natural extension of analysis is design, since no additional information is required. A general design procedure that may be used for ECL as well as the design of other types of oscillators is discussed in Chapter IV.
