A 1 GHz crystal oscillator design
This thesis will discuss oscillator design using scattering, or S-, parameters. A quartz crystal resonator will be used in the design to achieve better frequency stability. The crystal resonator will be discussed in terms of its equivalent circuit and modifications will be made to this equivalent circuit to model high frequency behavior. Finally, an oscillator will be designed and built and a comparison between theoretical and actual values will be given with conclusions concerning the use of S-parameters and high stability resonating devices in oscillator design.
