The Design of Oscillator Using ADS
                                                                 ZHANG Hualiang, December 19, 2004

This application note describes the design procedure of oscillator working at 2.3GHz using agilent’s ADS.
In this notes, I will show the design procedures step by step.

Design procedures
   1. Open ADS program. Choose “File        New Project” to open a new project.
                                                            ZHANG Hualiang, December 19, 2004

2. In the new schematic of the project, we use the library icon to get the transistor model for the

3. In this oscillator design we will use nec_NE76184A_19921216 as the FET transistor. So we
   choose the model for the transistor from the RF_transistor_library Packaged GaAs FETs

                                                                      Icon for the transistor
                                                                ZHANG Hualiang, December 19, 2004

   4. We are now going to construct the circuit for input output matching and biasing network. Because
      we need to use the transmission line to do the interconnect, all these line’s parameters can be
      defined by using the TLines_Microstrip category as shown in the below figures.

Then we need to start the S-parameters simulation. The setup for the S-parameters simulation can be
found in the Simulation_S_param category. We need to define frequency range, and terms for simulation.

 To further prove the performance of the designed oscillator, we need to do the harmonic simulation to
see the overall frequency performance of the oscillator. The setup for the harmonic simulation can be
found in the Simulation_S_param category. We need to define frequency range, and terms for simulation.

   5. Start circuit simulation.
   After constructing the circuit schematic, we can simulate the circuit. First we select Simulate
   Simulate the circuit

   Then the data widow is prompted, you can choose the display mode for the simulation results (in
Table, polar axis, smith chart …) , and can choose the desired S-parameter in dB, dBm…..

The final results is similar to the figure given below

                                                                          ZHANG Hualiang, December 19, 2004

   The results of harmonic balance simulation is also given below.

   From it we can see that the amplitude of peak oscillation frequency is 6.799dBm.

  An oscillator designed on 2.3GHz is given in this notes based on the ADS simulation. It can be seen
that by the help of the ADS various simulations can be done easily. Both the cost and the iterations of the
design process have been decreased by using this powerful EDA tool.

Description: Oscillator is used to generate electrical signals repeated (usually a sine wave or square wave) of electronic components. The composition of the circuit called the oscillation circuit. Able to convert DC output AC signal with a certain frequency electronic circuit or device. Many different types of incentives by the oscillation can be divided into self-excited oscillator, he oscillator; according to the circuit structure can be divided into RC oscillator, inductor-capacitor oscillator, crystal oscillator, tuning fork oscillator, etc.; according to output waveform can be divided into a sine wave, square wave, sawtooth and other oscillator. Widely used in electronic industry, medical, scientific research and so on.
