The phase-locked oscillator (PLO) is a versatile low-noise signal source that is available in different architectures to suit different applications and environments. The purpose of this article is to review the fundamentals of PLOs and describe some of the most popular types.
It is surprising that the dominant approach to power combining at VHF and UHF is via coaxial cables, which come with inherent assembly, cost, and thermal issues. Printed baluns, although at times more difficult to design, can help overcome the cost and assembly issues associated with coaxial cables. This white paper describes how to leverage electromagnetic simulators in order to address design issues and accurately analyze printed baluns.
Way back in 1986, when I was developing the method of moments software that we are selling today, I encountered (and overcame) many problems. One problem first became apparent when I was demonstrating prototype software at HP. When we compared the results to measurement, the differences steadily increased as we went up in frequency. The solution to the problem, which is described in this article, involved developing equations for EM calibration theory based on ANA calibration theory.
