A monolithic subharmonically injection-locked oscillator (ILO) with wide frequency tuning range using a shunted varactor diode inserted to the oscillation loop is presented. A 20-GHz-band ILO is fabricated that achieves the wide injection locking range of more than 700 MHz at each subharmonic factor up to 32. In addition, the phase-noise degradation rate of the ILO against the subharmonic factor is close to 6 db/oct. The ILO configuration is extremely suitable for realizing low cost and low-phase-noise millimeter-wave monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) sources
