In this paper, we introduce a novel HBT/RTD oscillator suitable for monolithic integration and efficient low power/battery-operated applications. Implementation of a circuit prototype was accomplished by configuring an InP-based monolithic HBT/RTD chip with a gold wire bond inductor in a hybrid microwave package. For an output frequency of 5.8 GHz, the circuit draws a current of 15.5 mA from a 1.5 V supply and generates an output power of +3.13 dBm, for an efficiency of 8.84%.
