Crystal Oscillators - Piezoelectric Oscillator. Equivalente circuit

Crystal Oscillators – Piezoelectric Oscillator. Equivalente circuit

The Crystal Oscillators (Piezoelectric Oscillator) A quartz crystal has a property called: piezoelectric effect. This effect causes, by applying a mechanical pressure on the surface of the crystal, that a voltage is developed on the opposite sides. In a similar way, a voltage applied on the faces of the crystal produces a mechanical distortion on their surface. An AC voltage causes […]

LC Oscillator - Inductance - Capacitance Oscillator

LC Oscillator – Inductance – Capacitance Oscillator

LC oscillator: Inductance – Capacitance Oscillator A simple oscillator can be built with an amplifier stage and an inductive-capacitive network (LC) to provide an offset of -180° The oscillation frequency can be freely adjusted or tuned on a range of frequencies from 100kHz to a few hundred MHz by changing only the value of C or L. These LC […]

Phase Shift Oscillator

Phase Shift Oscillator

The Phase Shift Oscillator The phase shift oscillator, whose basic structure is described in the picture 1.a  has a a negative gain amplifier (-K) and a feedback network consisting of a third order RC section in cascade. The oscillation condition requires that the feedback network produce a phase shift of 180° to be consistent with the negative gain amplifier which […]

Sinusoidal oscillators - Basic principles

Sinusoidal oscillators – Basic principles

Sinusoidal Oscillators Sinusoidal oscillators play an important role in electronic systems that use harmonic signals. Despite that, in many instances are known as linear oscillators, it is necessary to use some non-linear feature to generate a sine wave output. In fact, the sinusoidal oscillators are essentially non-linear which complicates the technical design and analysis of such circuits. The […]
