A new type of highly stabilized GaAs FET oscillator using a dielectric resonator and a stabilization resistor in the feedback circuit has been developed. The oscillator fabricated with a microwave integrated circuit has a high external quality factor Qex for more than1000 with no hysteresis phenomena. The microwave characteristics of the GaAs FET oscillator has revealed 1) high efficiency of 20 percent with 70-mW output power at 11.85 GHz, 2) a wide tuning range more than1000 MHz, 3) a wide oscillation frequency from 9 to 14 GHz with same MIC pattern by using five dielectric resonators of different sizes, 4) a high-frequency stability as low as ± 150kHz in the tempature range from -20 to + 60° C, and 5) low FM noise of 0.07 Hz/ √Hz at off-carrier frequency of 100kHz.
