Ferroelectric capacitors made from Ba10.5Sr0.5 TiO3 (BST) are applied as varactors in tunable, high-frequency circuit applications. In this context, a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) has been designed and implemented using discrete RF bipolar junction transistor (BJTs) and tunable ferroelectric capacitor. The designed VCO has a tuning range from 205 MHz to 216.3 MHz with a power dissipation of 5.1 mW. The measured phase noise is -90 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz and -140 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz offset
