    The authors present an exact design method of a microwave power source suitable for microwave integrated circuits. It is composed of a two-terminal active element and a varactor frequency multiplier. Large-signal nonlinearities of the active element and the varactor are taken into account in the analysis. A simple method to determine the optimum load for the oscillator using a dynamic conductance ... View full abstract»

    The authors deal with two recently reported active circuits for realization of a grounded inductor using a single unity-gain amplifier and RC networks. It is shown that the inductance parameters are very sensitive to amplifier gain; this can be remedied by using a high-gain differential-input operational amplifier. Amplifier imperfection in respect of nonzero output impedance is found to make both... View full abstract»

    An economical approach to integrated active RC filter design is described. Complex filter networks are broken down into a small family of cascadable second-order filter building blocks consisting of tantalum thin-film RC networks and semiconductor, integrated, operational amplifiers. The same building blocks are used for any desired filter configuration such as low-pass, high-pass, or bandpass fil... View full abstract»

    The technique of designing inductorless filters by replacing the inductors in conventional LC filters with gyrators and capacitors is considered for the special case of the high-quality channel bandpass filters used in multiplex telephony. One particular gyrator circuit, which has been found to be very satisfactory, using two operational amplifiers and four resistors, is analyzed in some detail. T... View full abstract»

  • Recent advances in microwave integrated-circuit solid-state source design

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):119 - 123

    Microwave integrated-circuit techniques have been applied to the design of solid-state signal sources. These sources use such circuits as varactor-tuned transistor oscillators, resistive isolation pads, amplifiers, and frequency multipliers. Using these circuits, a millimeter wave voltage-tunable source with an output of 10 mW from 31.8 to 33.4 GHz was made. A second source that was constructed wa... View full abstract»

  • Temperature stabilization of a negative-resistance characteristic

    The negative-resistance circuit of Nagata has the one defect that the range of voltage and current over which the negative-resistance region extends decreases significantly as temperature increases. The arrangement used in the differential amplifier is suggested here to eliminate this effect. Results obtained with such modification are presented. View full abstract»

    When transistors are operated at very low bias currents, excessive distortion is often produced by the changing emitter-base incremental resistance. A new configuration, characterized by an extremely low emitter resistance, which is independent of the output current, is proposed. View full abstract»

    McGregor (abstr. B7352 of 1969) gave two generalized realizations of gyrators; these may be obtained from each other by interchanging ports and resistors. This is a general property of circuits termed fundamental gyrators. View full abstract»

  • Comparison of input offset voltage of differential amplifiers using bipolar transistors and field-effect transistors

    A field-effect transistor (whether junction type or MOS type) has very high input impedance. For those who desire to achieve a higher input impedance, it is often asked `Why aren't FET pairs used as input stages and bipolar transistors used as output stages, since compatible FET and bipolar transistor monolithic structures have been developed?' This correspondence is a study of this question. View full abstract»

    A new method of looking at the stability of practical gyrator circuits, which is more accurate and easier to apply than any method known so far, is presented, and the method is applied to a simple gyrator circuit to show its inherent ability to realize inductors into the ultra-high frequency region.
