A phase-startable voltage controlled oscillator is achieved that covers the frequency range of 800 kHz to 800 MHz using a modified multivibrator topology. The IC was fabricated on a recently developed highspeed complementary bipolar process (vertical NPN ftau=9 GHz and vertical PNP fτ=5.5 GHz). The IC operates from ±5 volt supplies, and provides linearly adjustable frequency over a 500:1 range as well as a linearly adjustable period over a 4:1 range. The design exhibits an extremely short startup transient time of two cycles for steady-state oscillation while still providing moderate phase noise performance of -110 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz distance from the 400 MHz carrier
