Abstract

Fundamental-mode Pierce oscillators in the 250 to 710 MHz range have been realized utilizing thin-film bulk-acoustic-wave (BAW) resonators. Initial oscillators have demonstrated a phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz (1 kHz offset) and power levels of plus 6 dBm. A linear-model design approach was used. The circuit topology used and resonator fabrication technique show great promise for the creation of MMIC circuits in the 200 MHz to 2 GHz range.
