Log-domain All-pass Filter-based Multiphase Sinusoidal Oscillators
MetadataShow full item record
Log-domain current-mode multiphase sinusoidal oscillators based on all-pass filters are presented in this paper. The first-order differential equation is used for obtaining inverting and non-inverting all-pass filters. The proposed oscillators are realized by all-pass filters which can be electronically tuned their natural frequency and stage gain by adjusting the bias currents. Each all pass filter contains 10 NPN transistors and a grounded capacitor. The validated BJT model which used in SPICE simulation operated by a single power supply as low as 2.5 V. The frequency of oscillation can be controlled over four decades. The total harmonic distortions of these MSO at frequency 56.67 MHz and 54.44 MHz, obtained around 0.52% and 0.75%, respectively. The proposed circuits enable fully integrated in telecommunication systems and also suit to high-frequency applications. Nonideality studies and PSpice simulation results are included to confirm the theory.
