Voltage Controlled Oscillator Primer

Voltage Controlled Oscillator Primer

Voltage Controlled Oscillator Primer Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) are a key component to many tunable communications, radio, radar, sensing, and measurement systems. Essentially, a VCO is an oscillator that can be controlled by an input voltage, usually analog. Hence, adjusting the tuning voltage across its range also changes the VCOs output RF signal, proportionally. VCOs...
