New Compact VM Four-Phase Oscillator Employing Only Single Z-Copy VDTA And All Grounded Passive Elements
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, a new compact voltage-mode four-phase oscillator employing single z-copy voltage differencing transconductance amplifier (ZC-VDTA) and only grounded passive elements is introduced. The use of only grounded capacitors and resistors makes the proposed circuit ideal for integrated circuit implementation. The condition of oscillation and the frequency of oscillation are independently adjustable. The passive and active sensitivities of the proposed circuit configuration are low. Experimental measurement results using readily available Maxim Integrated ICs MAX435 are given to prove the theory.
